KUWP Newsletter Starting Up


Dear Friends and Colleagues of the KUWP,


I hope that this greeting finds you well. As always the KUWP remains dynamic. We are embarking on a new journey and hope you will join us. We will be creating a quarterly newsletter, which will be published on the 15th of March, June, September, and January. Its purpose will be to share what we are doing in our classrooms and schools and to have an opportunity to grow as authors by publishing our writing and sharing our successes.


These are proposed topics to be included in the newsletter. However it is meant to be ours, so if there is something that you would like to include, please do so. I hope that you will consider submitting an article or idea for one of the following sections of the newsletter:


  • Classroom Connection – language arts based activities/innovations that you are implementing in your classroom or school; share what is working for you and for your students
  • Writer’s Block – personal/professional writing of any genre that you would like to share; it could be something current or something that you are now ready to share
  • Announcements – upcoming activities/events that KUWP fellows and friends may be interested in attending
  • Reader’s Corner – share what you are reading; a literary critique of a book or article
  • KUWP Link – talk about any programs that you have attended as a result of your participation with KUWP for example, conferences, workshops, or special events as a way of sharing what you learned
  • Literary Resources – share information such as websites, programs, research, and technology that others may also find useful

All submissions are welcome. The deadline for submitting materials for the first issue will be Friday, February 25th. Please e-mail all submissions to katbentley@optonline.net. If you would like your name published with your submission, please indicate that along with your connection to the KUWP. If you would like to remain anonymous, let me know that as well, so that your name is not included.


The success of our newsletter depends on your participation. Please don’t hesitate to e-mail me with any questions or suggestions.


With best wishes for 2011,
