Slice 2012 A Big Win

This morning, like I do every morning when I first get up, I checked my email.  While checking, I found that Stacey at Two Writing Teachers had posted the winners of the prizes for the Fifth Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge.  I anxiously clicked on the link to read more.  I enjoyed reading through how she chose the winners and then read through how to claim your prize.  As I scrolled down, I was surprised and excited to see my name as the winner of the registration to the Seventh Annual All Write!!! Summer institute.  I attended the conference last year and my district was unable to send me this year.  I had considered paying the fee myself because the conference is, "that good", but had decided against it.  The prize for the Slice 2012 truly was in writing and what I learned every day about myself as a writer, but this prize is the cherry on top.  Thank you again Ruth and Stacey for organizing!  Can't wait for next year!

    1. Thank you! It is a WONDERful conference. Maybe we should organize a Slice 2012 "Tweet up" (I think that's what it's called???). Looking forward to maybe meeting you!

  3. It looks so fun! I wanted to go last year, but we were still in school. I was excited that this year we would be out of school, but my son is getting married that week, so maybe next year. Do share your learnings here for all of us!
