Poetry Contest Sponsored by Northern Nevada Writing Project! Give it a try with your kids:)

Hooray to Missouri educator, Calee McElwain, who became our 10,000th member of this ning yesterday.  We just sent Calee two complimentary copies of NNWP Print Guides (http://www.unr.edu/educ/nnwp/publications.html) to share with her colleagues!  Calee chose two awesome titles: "The Going Deep with 6 Trait Language Guide" and our "Reading in the Content Areas Guide"

If you wish you had won one of those NNWP Print Guides, remember that we're sponsoring a K-12 Halloween Poetry Contest this month, and the prize for teachers who submit the best five or six student poems will be a choice from the NNWP Print Guide Collection too!

To enter the contest, you must adapt the following WritingFix lesson, which is inspired by Joan Horton's picture book or poems, Halloween Hoots and Howlshttp://writingfix.com/Picture_Book_Prompts/Halloween_hoots1.htm

Students poems must be entered by their teachers before midnight on October 21 to the following posting page here at the ning:  http://writinglesson.ning.com/group/publishingstudentwriting/forum/topics/enter-our-hoots-howls

We hope many of you will enter.  If we feel this contest is a success, we are not only going to make it an annual October contest but we will also be sponsoring other monthly contests for student writers and teachers who use lessons at WritingFix.
