Because, as Ralph Fletcher says, "Writing is fun!"
I began this site in January 2018 as a way to organize my thinking around the teaching of writing. Everything here can be used and adapted in any way that will help students write more, write better and see themselves as writers (so no need to ask permission to use any ideas here- just use them!). Any resource that I mention or point to is because I like it; no one pays me, nor would I accept money, for endorsements. ‘Tis a labor of love.——Sean Tomás Fleming
