Continuity Programs

Come to the Mountain!

The KMWP Continuity Program provides opportunities for fellowship and professional renewal throughout the year. While these events allow former summer fellows and KMWP members to reconnect on a regular basis, they are also open to all educators, parents, students, and community members interested in promoting literacy.

Contact Continuity Program Coordinator: Mary Stillerman for information or to r.s.v.p. to an upcoming event.

Do you need a reason to join a writing group? Check all that apply:

  • Discipline and encouragement will motivate you to write and revise.
  • You are working on a novel or short story and need a reader’s ear.
  • You want to recapture the “magic” from your summer institute.
  • You want to strengthen your writing and develop your craft.
  • You have an idea for an article and need a sounding board.
  • Listening to others will help you critique your own writing.
  • A deadline is looming, and you need critical commentary.
  • You enjoy reading drafts and talking about technique.
  • You are a writer. It’s what we do.

“A colleague’s ‘can’t fail’ worksheet, an adage by a famous writer, and even a good chapter in a book about writing simply cannot duplicate the magic—there’s really no other word for it—when writers simply write and share their writing in a supportive environment.” ~ Connolly, Bill. “Keith’s Question.” The Voice. The National Writing Project. 9.2 (2004).
