Troy Hicks, author of The Digital Writing Workshop and director of the Chippewa River Writing Project, will keynote a fall conference for teachers of writing. EMWP will stage its annual fall conference, “Writing Beyond Expectation,” in the Student Center at EMU on September 26, 2010.

The conference will feature local K-12 teachers presenting their most successful practices in teaching writing in both electronic and traditional classroom environments. Registration begins at 8:00a.m., and the final session will end at 1:00 p.m.
