Connecting Great Reads to Great Writing

Roy Peter Clark, Vice President, Poynter Institute for Media Studies

What do great writers read? How does reading help these writers to hone their craft? Join us for an entertaining and enlightening exploration of the techniques that great writers deploy. Acclaimed writer, journalist, and writing teacher, Roy Peter Clark, will share his “X-ray reading” approach to help teach writers at all levels how to read with an eye toward learning--and improving--their writing with the help of great literature.

Turnitin Writing X Tech ( #writingxtech ) kicks off April 18 with a five-day virtual conference featuring webcasts on “The Writing Mindset” and how thinking differently about writing can engage students and set them up for success. K-12 educators, college instructors and students can pick from nine different webcasts offered for free April 18-22, 2016.
