This class will continue the writing experience of Writers’ Workshop I. It will combine those who have finished that class. There will be opportunities to explore your experiences as well as explore some fiction and other kinds of writing. You may choose to write short essays or stories or you may choose to concentrate on longer pieces. We will continue to provide oral and written feedback to your work from the class. Bring your writers’ notebook  and your continued enthusiasm for writing. Classroom

Janet Cowperthwaite has worked with Writers’ Workshop in her second grade class and in a graduate writing class.  The workshop that Janet has been using in Senior College has evolved from those experiences,  and she feels her job is to be facilitator, encourager, and cheerleader.

Janet graduated from Houlton High School in 1959 and from the University of Maine in 1963 with a degree in English and credits to be certified as an Elementary Teacher. She earned a Master’s in Education also from UMO in 1992.
