This is the third year that I am partnering with the Burlington Book Festival who is also bringing the Boston Typewriter Orchestra on Saturday, September 16th at 7PM (Tickets Required). Burlington is a beautiful city by the lake and is a fantastic place to visit on the cusp of fall. Bring your typewriter and make a trip of it!

I love typewriters and I love teaching writing. A big part of my collection lives in my office at school and I have long noticed how children are drawn to this writing tool.
This revelation has inspired me to develop a graduate course for teachers that focuses on the best strategies for teaching young writers and includes a typewriter in the cost of tuition. That's right, includes a typewriter. While I am offering this course in a blended format in Vermont with one day in person and the balance of the course in an online format, I can offer a totally online version to anyone in the United States. I will find a way to ship you a typewriter if you cannot find your own.
This course will be a blast and I hope you can join me.
