Here is the link to the May 2014 Writers Day page: Writers Day
Check it out for information on present and past writer visits.
Modeling our purpose and format from the acclaimed Fremd High School’s Writers Week, my school’s annual Writers Day began five years ago as an opportunity for students to celebrate and experience writing in ways that classroom time does not allow. We have visiting authors as well as student and faculty writers share, perform and discuss their work. This day-long celebration includes poetry slams, q & a, and read alouds. It is a day our entire school looks forward to!!
I had the honor of speaking at the NCTE 2013 annual convention to speak about Writers Week with colleagues representing six states. Here is that link: NCTE 2013 presentation
