My son has just finished writing a novel about origin of Peter Pan. He has spent two years writing and revising. He has tried to get a literary agent but can’t get any help. The only interested people are the vanity publishers who haven’t even seen his manuscript. Do you have any advice for him? Thanks so much. Rachelle
I’ve been blogging but haven’t figured out how / where to share on Slice….can someone demystify this process with me?
Hi, lauraleew. On Tuesdays, a post will go up on our homepage calling for Slice of Life Stories. Copy the link to your Slice of Life Story from your blog and paste your link in the comment box of the Tuesday post. If you get stuck next Tuesday, you can email me directly at email@example.com, and I will walk you through it.
I just noticed that I am getting an alert for posts from some of you but not all of you –
I am missing Anna’s and Besty post for sure. Not sure why I don’t get all of them since I am following the Two Writing teacher site. I just discovered it this morning but had been thinking for a few weeks that I seem to not be reading all the Two Writing teacher posts.
Wondering if others are having trouble or it I need to connect with in a different way. Thanks
I cannot find any of my posts as they apparently didn’t stick? Not sure what I am doing wrong.
In checking, I cannot find any of the posts I have posted. I am not sure what I am doing wrong?i see under recent comment/post my name. Please advise
I find my comments don’t “stick” each time. Haven’t determined exactly why, has happened with my iPad, phone, and even laptop. All are Mac….hmmm….it is frustrating. I love reading the posts and want to share that. WordPress (which I use) sites are always fine, blogspot is the least likely to accept my comment and others are inconsistent.
I’ve had trouble with comments disappearing too, so now I just punch “publish” first, which it doesn’t like because there’s nothing there – and then I find my comment will stay in the box when I retype. Not a great solution but saves time and frustration.
As for commenting-IPhone or IPad: I’ve found when I get ‘stuck’ & it won’t let me continue, I say ‘done’, it is ready to publish, then I return to the comment & it lets me write more. Hope that helps. As for the disappearing, I didn’t have any trouble a few days ago on the IPad. And just commented on one post from my IPhone. Don’t know what’s happening with others?
Just a quick note to thank you for sharing so many wonderful resources for teachers on this blog. You are providing such a viable professional space for growth and inspiration. Thanks!
Recently you wrote about, Gandhi: A March to the Sea. In your post you referenced a Common Core Educator Guide. Do you know how I could find out if Amazon has other books that have these accompanying guides?
Awhile ago I was perusing your site and came across a recommendation of a book, a collection of essays written by some students, perhaps in New York, that could be used to teach essay. Do you know what book I’m referring to?
Any suggestions, would be great. I teach fifth and essay format is our big push.
Cara- It’s called Deal with It: Powerful Words from Smart, Young Women. It should still be available at Amazon.com. Hope that helps!
Wow, thank you so much. I appreciate your quick reply – my district is purchasing some new texts and I’ll happily add this title to our list. I love your blog – thanks for sharing your wisdom.
Hello! I think a while back you mentioned being part of a writer’s conference at Penn State in York. Can you tell me how I can find more information about this conference–there is still very little information available on-line. My husband and I are both teachers and we live in Indonesia, so we are hoping to plan ahead. If you have any contact information that would be helpful. Thanks!
I am very interested in your “Day by Day” book. The Stenhouse site lists it as a book for K-6, but I teach 7th and 8th grade language arts. Would the book still be viable for me? I am in the process of starting a writing workshop (I know, nothing like waiting until the first quarter is over) and it seems as this book would be very valuable as I begin my journey. Thank you so much for your time.
Thanks! I did not realize that I’d be signing up for email by following at the top. Thanks!
I also teach writing and wanted to follow your post, but you do not have an email follow feature. Is this a possibility. I don’t twitter or facebook.
