Pursue a Writing Passion Project!

LIWP Saturday Series

What's Your Passion?

Kathleen Neagle Sokolowski will facilitate the next workshop in our Saturday Series, “Pursue a Writing Passion Project!” on Saturday, October 29th. Educators are encouraged to be writers themselves for many reasons, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start or how to make time for writing in an already jam-packed life. A Passion Project could be the answer! Join Kathleen Neagle Sokolowski on Saturday, October 29th, from 9:30-noon to explore how to get started on your own independent writing project that matches your passions and interests. Experience a Writing Makerspace as you find that idea you want to develop. Consider how all of this could be brought to your students and how your own writing could be a powerful model. The workshop will be held at Nassau Community College, CCB Building, Room 210. Please RSVP here or to Darshna.Katwala@ncc.edu .

Long Island Writing Project


The Long Island Writing Project (LIWP) is an official site of the National Writing Project, part of a federally-funded network of 200 sites nationwide and eight sites in New York State. Through our work with teachers in Nassau and Western Suffolk counties, we seek to improve writing, reading and learning in area schools. Since our inception in 1993, over 1000 teachers have participated in our programs.

The LIWP comprises teachers from kindergarten through university. Our seminar leaders are outstanding educators from different grade levels and disciplines in local schools, and we have a strong, ongoing partnership with Hofstra University's Department of Literacy Studies. LIWP teacher-consultants keep up with research and changes in education and their work is grounded in practical classroom approaches. Through our model of teachers teaching teachers, participants in the LIWP strengthen the classroom strategies they already find effective in teaching writing and develop new ones.

One of the most important foundational beliefs of our Project is that teachers improve their knowledge of teaching writing by writing themselves. Another is that the best way to improve our own teaching is through sharing what works with other effective teachers. We welcome your inquiries, and look forward to writing, learning and teaching with you.
