In the last month since my return from South Africa, I've been very busy teaching classes, working on the San Antonio Writing Project and editing the journal, Voices From the Middle. I've also been sharing my experience in South Africa and particularly our work with The Limpopo Writing Project. We need to raise as much money as possible for the 2010 Limpopo Summer Institute. In addition to telling our stories, I've been searching the web looking for grants that might fund the Limpopo Writing Project. There aren't a lot of grants and I would love help from anyone who has experience or insight into the process or can help in anyway.
Meanwhile, The San Antonio Writing Project had a very successful 3rd conference in February. Our TC's did a wonderful job sharing their expertise and we had terrific evaluations. We loved listening to author David Liss share his writing process. I was particularly impressed with the great organization of the conference because I was out of the country for so much of the planning. I am so proud of all our teacher consultants. The deadline for applicants for The 2009 SAWP Summer Institute is April 1st. You can apply online for it at www.sanantoniowritingproject.org.
