I’ve combined my expertise as a teacher of writing with my interest in food allergies, and here’s one exciting outcome: I’m teaching a workshop on personal writing for teens at the inaugural FARE National Food Allergy Conference in Rosemont, IL. I just finished putting together the materials, and I think it will be good. I’ve come up with some fun games and challenging exercises, and I’ve discovered some fantastic teen writing and blogging around the web. Looking forward to talking with/listening to/learning from the teens in my workshop. Details can be found here.
