As mentioned here not long ago, the Red River Valley Writing Project is taking the invitational summer institute from its summer slot and moving it to the fall with weekly meetings. The pre-institute for this intensive institute (the new name) is today and tomorrow.
This means writing prompts galore, professional reading and serious fun, all with an eye to taking the intimate knowledge one gains about writing through writing and applying it to the teaching of writing. This translates into considering the metacognition of writing.
Planning for this intensive institute has been...intense. And, as this institute develops, posts here will chronicle some of that development.
