Writing Matters Conference 2018
March 10, 2018
SUNY Cortland

Each year the Writing Matters conference brings together teacher-leaders from across CNY (and sometimes as far away as NYC and Boston) to lead sessions on the teaching of writing. All sessions are interactive — the audience does stuff as the leader takes them through a 75-minute participatory inquiry into writing. The goal is not to share some “tips” about teaching writing, but to lead as a writer to other writers.Submit proposals beginning in January of 2018.
