Editorial Reviews


"Workshops Work! provides inspiration and the nitty gritty details to help anyone establish a writer's workshop. The book is geared toward adults who are working with kids, but you could just as easily use this book to establish an adult writer's workshop. It's full of wonderful nuggets that will not only help writers and writing teachers respond and help their students respond more effectively to workshops, but will help us respond more effectively and empathetically to each other out in the world, in daily life."-Kate Hopper, author of Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers 

"Patricia Zaballos understands that kids won't develop a love of and skill in writing if they're coerced to write. Instead, she inspires them to write! Her workshops give kids a reason to write, such as having an audience and something to say. She creates a safe, supportive, peer-to-peer experience such as many adult writers benefit from, rather than the conventional top-down, assigned topic approach characteristic of so many school situations. It's wonderfully respectful of children and their writing - and it works!"-Wendy Priesnitz, publisher of Life Learning Magazine
"Workshops Work! shows parents, teachers, tutors, and other writing workshop leaders the important human qualities needed to develop young writers: patience, enthusiasm, and empathy. Patricia Zaballos draws from a deep well of experience to share her best methods and tips for helping kids of all ages enjoy writing while learning about themselves and exploring their own interests."-Gary Anderson, author of Expository Composition: Discovering Your Voice
