Teaching Author Writing Workouts

Posted by Carmela Martino

In my April 22nd post introducing this blog, I neglected to mention one of the regular features we plan to include here: Writing Workouts. These will be writing exercises that can be used by young writers and those who are, as Teaching Author Esther Hershenhorn likes to say, "young at heart." We invite classroom teachers to try these exercises with their students, and adult writers to try them on their own. Afterward, we hope you'll let us know whether you found the exercise helpful.

We chose the above image--a set of barbells and a ribbon with a medal--as the logo for our Writing Workouts because everyone who works out with us is a winner! The logo will serve as a visual clue to make it easy to find the Writing Workout within a post. And all posts containing a workout will be indexed under Writing Workout in the sidebar Subject Index .

Our first Writing Workout will appear in tomorrow's post by Teaching Author Esther Hershenhorn. Enjoy!
