Preparing Alaska’s Students for Success in the Global Economy

‘Talk Story, Write Story’ Creative Writing Workshops for Teachers Offered


Talk Story, Write Story is a writing workshop developed over the past 14 years in a small, rural, isolated community in high poverty to help students write profound essays that have gained them college admittance and millions of dollars in scholarship money, including coveted Gates Millennium Scholarships.

These intensive 3-day workshops are being offered to Alaska teachers and counselors to enhance their professional life and benefit the students they work with, who dream of going to college. Veteran journalists Tad Bartimus and Dean Wariner bring energy and enthusiasm to their workshops with the ultimate goal of student success.
