"I love how today's session took the pressure off me and showed me ways to open kids writing abilities." Taryn Tupes

 

Barry Lane is one of the finest speakers on the teaching of writing. His combination of warmth, insight and energy is magical. My colleagues and I left our day with Barry with full hearts and high spirits, ready to bring new strategies and new energy into our writing workshops.
