Introducting #WCW: Writer Crush Wednesday

Untitled Infographic (1)

Do you want to share your writer-love with others?  Would YOU like to be entered to win a prize at the end of the month?  Then you should sign up to be a guest blogger for #wcw!

Starting this month, Wednesdays will be #wcw, or “Writer Crush Wednesday,” and each Wednesday we’ll feature a new writer.

February will be African American writers for Black History Month;

March will be women writers for Women’s History Month;

April will be poets for Poetry Month;

and May will be a free-for-all.

Instead of me deciding who gets selected to be featured, I would LOVE for guest bloggers to sign up for a week to contribute their writer-crushes.  There’s no strict structure for the blog, so the only requirements would be that you:

  • feature one author
  • provide a link to background information and/or texts
  • suggest a least one text teachers can do with their classes
  • tell us why you love him/her AND/OR provide creative, fun, or practical way to teach the author

Posts can be as long as short as you’d like them to be, and you’ll submit it to me via e-mail, so I can post it to the blog.  Just submit your post to me by the end of the day Tuesday (before your Wednesday posting date!)

My hope is that #WCW can increase our knowledge-base of great authors, pique our interest, and give us some more fodder for our classrooms and teaching.

You never know when someone will introduce you to you next crush!  Share your love!
