Palooza Title

Coming Spring 2017!

Last year…

Over 100 students along with their parents and teachers gathered together at Alfred Nobel Elementary School in Chicago to celebrate writing.

The day began with Chicago journalist Adrienne Gibbs, who inspired us to get our voices heard.  Following were workshops on many types of real-world writing, filled with students drafting, sharing, laughing and learning.

This video explains the work of the Illinois Writing Project as well as the excitement of the Writing Palooza day.
