It might feel as though summer is miles away. So perhaps think about the possibility of attending a National Writing Project professional writing retreat.
Take a look below at information about such retreat from NWP's website.
The NWP Professional Writing Retreat focuses on giving teachers a chance to write about the profession of teaching and their practice, analyze and draw conclusions about policy, discuss school reform, talk about literacy and learning, and address a variety of concerns about teaching writing. Facilitators and guest editors provide support and coaching on site. Participants have long stretches of time to write and receive feedback from their writing group.
