TRY THIS TOMORROW: GOING BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE WRITING PROCESS
If you are looking for resources to give your students a behind-the-scenes view of the writing process, try Craft and Advice from Literary Hub and How I Wrote It from CBC Books. Both feature writers’ first-person accounts of their writing process and craft.
These would be a fantastic launching point for a craft and process study as an alternative to a more traditional form study. They can be incorporated into mini-lessons or used as invitations for students to reflect on and discuss their own writing processes. They are a powerful reminder that the writing process is not a linear one.
