Second Saturdays is a series of writing workshops held on the second Saturday of the month and designed for classroom teachers who want to enhance their own skills as writers as well as those of their students.  Taught by professional writers, each interactive workshop provides concrete and innovative strategies and lessons that teachers can take directly into their classrooms–transforming classrooms into incubators for creativity and innovation.
