“Fire on the Page: Writing to the Bone!” is a full-day writers’ workshop for educators. Hosted by the Yellowstone Writing Project, this year’s interactive workshop focuses on writing in museums and similar spaces, using the rich history and science as inspiration. Participants will use Museum of the Rockies archives and digital sources as well as resources from renowned Montana writer Ivan Doig to bring multiple disciplines to life through writing.
Teachers of all disciplines and grade levels are invited, and teams of teachers are encouraged. Principals and curriculum leaders who are interested in thinking more about how writing builds and utilizes community will also benefit from the workshop.
Registration is $120, with an early bird registration of $100 available through Jan. 19.
Registration include conference, coffee, lunch and OPI renewal units.
The workshop takes place from 8:30am to 4:30pm at Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman. Register through MSU Continuing, Professional and Lifelong Learning at https://eu.courses.montana.edu/CourseStatus.awp?&course=18SWFFIRE
