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 Howls: http://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.
