This week the Morehead Writing Project invites you to join our Small Poems: Great Writers marathon by writing about your origin story. Use our invitation to explore the foods, places, and people who shaped your origin story. Write by yourself, write with your students or writing group, or come join us synchronously or asynchronously by signing up today for Small Poems: Great Writers.
Small Poems: Great Writers is open to all writers of all ages in our Morehead Writing Project community. We hope Morehead WP teachers will involve their students of all ages and we hope our adult writers from preservice to retired teachers and those who just love to write will join us too. You have the opportunity to participate as an individual writer or a writing group leader as well as support our editorial team as we hopefully create an anthology of the small poems that come out of this writing. But this week we are simply celebrating ourselves through freewriting about the foods, places, and people who shaped our origin stories. We are in the Create and Celebrate section of the marathon (Feb. 21-March 11) and writers are still welcome to join our community.

Leslie Workman of Fairview Elementary, Stacie May of Rowan County Middle; Seth Thatcher of Bath County High; and Deanna Mascle of Morehead State are planning this project so feel free to reach out directly with your ideas. Ask us if you need help convincing reluctant administrators about the value of this program to cultivate genius, develop essential skills, and create joy.
