Summer Institute for Educators

Stay tuned for the 2017 dates!

For educators seeking to build community through writing

Join us for three days in Portland, Maine this summer to learn The Telling Room’s proven method for improving literacy skills while building confidence and a sense of community. Building off of the recognition from the White House we received in 2015, we offer tools and techniques to teachers, artists, and nonprofit leaders in a professional development setting.

We gear our forum to educators who work with students 6-18, and seek deliverables that can be taken back to any community or student population. In addition to touching on all of the stages of the writing process, we’ll also offer breakout groups in nonprofit leadership, working with immigrant and refugee populations, and publishing on a budget.
