Through the Heart of Texas Writing Project, Dr. Randy Bomer helps teachers and young writers alike find their inner authors.

In the workshops, the teachers learn best practices in writing instruction, review research, build a strong network of like-minded colleagues and, most important, produce writing of their own.
