Recently, at The Power of the Pen (Blog post below) I met the talented husband of a friend of mine. Lenny Ramirez is a writer of some pretty cool stuff including a graphic novel and some steampunk, but beyond that, he has also set up some new forums. Working in education, he and his wife, Kristen, have a great sense of what kids love to read and write and know that young talent needs good mentors. In that vein, he has created a group of forums for student writers, educators, and authors.
Students can get feedback and share what they are working on as well as a forum for writing prompts posted by educators. The forum shares a homepage with forums for teachers and authors with the idea that teacher and writers will be cruising the posts and giving feedback and inspiration to each other s well as the students. And, there is a great place for authors to share what they are working on and events they are attending.
All in all, it is a great start to what will be a fun resource for students, teachers, and authors alike. Come join us and see for yourself what we are up to. Join the conversation and share with anyone you know who would love to be a part of it. I love this idea!
To join in, check out Lenny’s website and click on the Forum page in the menu.
