Unanimously the vote is in. Annette Whipple‘s Master Class on Writing NonFiction was a fact-filled, inspiring day that left all of the participants with stuffed brains and many book ideas waiting to be explored.
Annette told us that informational writing opportunities are everywhere and that these books are invaluable to educators. Nonfiction can include stories that are inspired by facts and framed by facts, but also use the writer’s imagination and experiences.
In break-out sessions, we got inspired, brainstormed topics, shared ideas and writing samples, met new friends, discussed research, thought about how to engage readers, and had fun!
Annette discussed the pro’s and con’s of Work for Hire and introduced concepts of Lexile Level and readability. She shared some of her own resources for researching, like how to set up a research notebook.
Did I say we left with stuffed brains?
So, What’s Next?
The Write2Ignite planning team was thrilled at how well Annette’s Master Class was received. We’ve been talking about how we can help you take your next step towards writing/editing/submitting/publishing your work. As a result, Jean Hall, our director, asked me to share this announcement with you:
Beginning right away our Write2Ignite Newsletter will include a new feature. The issue following each Master Class will include our “Next Steps” feature for you. We’ll suggest some “Next Steps” you can take to help you remember, practice, implement, and solidify the material included in the most recent Master Class.
We can hardly wait for this because we, the Team, need the same help as we continue to learn how to write for God’s children.
Of course, you don’t want to miss this feature, so make sure you have signed up for our newsletter. It’s on this page on the right side.
And as soon as we nail down our spring Master Class you’ll be the first to know!
