National Writing Project's

Mindful Writing Workshop Series

January 19th - March 2nd, 2022


Our Purpose

Nothing is more important in these difficult times than providing trauma-informed, healing classrooms as we grow students’ knowledge and skills. Educators need to both respond to students restoratively and also to take healing care of themselves. As a student, you'll get a few great benefits from being here:

Access to helpful content. We've designed The Mindful Writing Workshop series to inspire, instruct, and engage.


Focusing on the practical guidance people might need to engage with this work in their own classrooms. These four "take-away" sessions will be taught by Dr. Richard Koch, the book's author.

“This book is a great book to be using

in your Writers Workshop, teachers.

The more we know about stress and trauma in students, the better we can teach them. My husband, Adam, and

I have started to use this in our personal Writers Workshop with our classes.

It has brought on so many lovely conversations and a space to feel welcomed and loved. Check it out.”
