A couple of years ago one of Kevin Hodgson’s blog posts introduced me to the national Write Out project. This is a two week, online event held every October.

This year’s NWP Write Out begins on October 8th and runs through October 22nd. The idea of the project is to inspire writers through outdoor settings, particularly National Parks settings, but I think I any outdoor setting will suffice.
Write Out 2021 is a combined effort of the National Writing Project and the National Parks Service. The theme of the project, beyond inspiration from the outdoors, is “Poetry, Prose, and Parks.”

If you want your students to participate in Write Out 2023 head to the website and sign-up to receive writing prompts, activities, and events to support work in the classroom.
