The PLWP Summer Invitational is a great place to learn more about one’s students and one’s self as a writer, and to discover new ways to engage students in writing. Over the course of the institute, my motivation to head into the new school year was sparked through the rich and varied discussions, writings, and relationships that were built. The best part: walking away with a wealth of knowledge brought to the institute by teaches with over a hundred collective years of teaching experience.
Since 2004, PLWP has served as a preliminary judging site for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, a national, annual high school writing and art contest. Each year we recruit scorers for the Missouri Writing Region regional entries and national at-large scoring (if needed).
Recruitment for scorers occurs yearly in January.
