Growing Invisible Voices, a new book from the Oklahoma-based non profit Invisible Young Voices, Inc., encourages partner teachers to discover the young writers hidden in their classes, provides the tools and moral support teachers need to nurture those kids, and helps educators find opportunities to recognize and publish those writers’ stories.
Invisible Young Voices, Inc. has been awarded a $500 grant by the Oklahoma Educators Credit Union to sponsor the four $100 first place prizes and the $50 prizes for the Education and Fresh Voices categories of the first annual Young Voices Writing Contest.
Invisible Young Voices, Inc. founder and president Michelle Waters hosted an #OklaEd Twitter chat Sunday evening. The topic, Growing Invisible Voices, featured questions on how teachers can discover and nurture writers hidden in their classes.
