The Writer's Jungle Webinar

Get to Know The Writer’s Jungle
September 28, 2016
7:00-8:30 PM Eastern

Writing is the waterloo of home education for thousands of families.

  • Do you worry your child is not writing at grade level?
  • Do you wonder how to give feedback to your child that improves the writing without causing tears?
  • Are you confused by the various writing strategies available? Which is best?
  • Do you love Brave Writer, but still lack confidence in guiding your child’s writing?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, or if you simply want more in-depth training for writing instruction, please join me!

I’d like to invite you to a FREE online webinar I’m giving that will walk you through our primary writing program:

The Writer’s Jungle!

I will guide you chapter-by-chapter, step-by-step to help you implement The Writer’s Jungle to its maximum benefit. I’ll also give you additional insight and practices to enhance the uses you have already discovered for yourself.

You do not have to own The Writer’s Jungle to come to the webinar.

If you decide that you want to purchase The Writer’s Jungle at the end of the webinar, you will have an opportunity to do so. We will also provide you with a discount code to use on any product from Brave Writer for those who stay to the end of the webinar.

Replay will be limited to registered guests and only available for 24 hours. Discounts available for guests of the live webinar (not replay).

We only have room for a limited number of participants (and spots are already filling up!). Register and join the webinar on time in order to “get in the room.”

NEW: Poetry Teatime Cozies!!

Poetry Tea Cozies Collection Summer 2016

When staff member Tia Levings suggested we sell tea cozies as part of our Poetry Teatime website, I flinched. I didn’t want to be that company that sold a bunch of swag that took precious dollars away from curriculum purchases or piano lessons in frugal homeschool families.

Tia prevailed upon me to see what she and her mother (an expert seamstress with an industrial sewing business) concocted with our logos on them. My jaw dropped. These were hands-down the prettiest tea cozies I had ever seen. And the truth is: I had spent money to purchase them because they added whimsy and warmth to our pots of tea. That’s when I realized you might like the same opportunity!

Our tea cozies are

  • Custom-designed for Poetry Teatime.
  • 100% cotton with a particularly powerful thin batting that will keep your pot of tea warm up to an hour.
  • Made with fabrics that have been hand-selected to go with summer! Nancy Graham (author of the Poetry Teatime Companion) and Jeannette Hall (Social Media Fairy) gave each one a poetic name related to the fabric patterns.

I’m excited to introduce the perfect companion to tea: Brave Writer’s Poetry Teatime Tea Cozies, Summer 2016 Collection. We have limited stock. When we run out, we’re out! Grab them while they persist. They might make a wonderful gift for your new-to-teatime friends, paired with our poetry anthology Poetry Teatime Companion.

Introducing

Poetry Teatime Cozy

Bloomfall
Put down your gardening shears, take up your journal, breathe in the aroma of a hot pot of tea, and give thanks for plants, without which no blossoms, no food—and worst of all!—no tea. The brilliant wordsmith and poet, Gerard Manley Hopkins, coined the word we’ve adopted to name this floral tea cozy.

Poetry Teatime Cozy

 

The Runcible
Introduce a note of whimsy to your tea party with this bright and cheeky cozy, named for the word Edward Lear coined but neglected to define. The world is as big as your imagination.

Poetry Teatime Cozy

 

Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz
Inspired by the whimsical, made-up language of Dr. Seuss’s jazzamataz pizzazz, this cozy zigzags, zips, and zings with bright zany color.

 

 

If your table needs a boost of fun, or your teapots need a snug place to stay warm while you read your poems aloud, we humbly offer you our tea cozies to fill the bill!
