Check out the following mentors and authors that Kate Messner introduces and what she has to say:

Kate Messner: That’s me – I’m your Teachers Write hostess & will kick things off with the first mini-lesson on Monday. I’ll also have lots of things to say throughout the summer. Because I am like that. 🙂 Here’s my newest book & a couple that are available for pre-order, coming out during the school year.

 Gae Polisner: Hosts Feedback Friday on her blog and is generally the best cheerleader this side of the Mississippi. The best in all the land, in fact. Gae wrote these amazing books.

 Jo Knowles: Kicks off each week with her Monday Morning Warm Up, a writing prompt to get your fingers moving and writer’s brain thinking. Here are some of Jo’s books. These all made me cry. In a good way.

 Guest Authors : These folks will be stopping in to teach Monday Mini-Lessons, offer Tuesday and Thursday Quick Writes, and answer your questions on Q and A Wednesdays. They are all great writers and even better human beings, and I’m so happy to be introducing them to you. Check out the wonderful list of writerly folks:
