This year's High School Writing Day was another success! Our theme for the day, "Fact or Fiction," allowed students to explore the often blurry lines between fact and fiction.  This year, nearly 200 students from area schools attended!  Missouri Western English faculty members and PLWP Teacher Consultants offered several writing workshops to help students hone their craft.  

 

Here are a few student-made videos showcasing highlights of the day's fun!

This year's High School Writing Day had the theme of "Mash It Up!"  This allowed students to blend genres, voices, styles, and other elements of their writing in new and interesting ways.  This year, nearly 200 students from 14 area schools attended, including 5 schools new to HSWD!  Eleven workshops--offered by MWSU English faculty and PLWP Teacher Consultants--allowed students to write about things from pine cones as poetry to shooting footage across campus to create a convergent news piece!
