Super Saturday Writing Conference: A Virtual Event for K-12 Educators

Don’t wait—capacity is limited at this one-day virtual event!

PD on a Saturday??

Ok, let’s face it—teachers are being stretched to the limit, and weekends are a cherished pocket of personal time. So why would you want to attend a full-day workshop on a Saturday?

Super Saturday is going to be super fun! With free digital giveaways and periodic prize drawings, everyone will be a winner.

You will learn so many practical, ready-to-use strategies, you’ll be excited to return to school on Monday.


Substitute teachers are virtually nonexistent at most schools, making mid-week attendance nearly impossible. Even if you could find a sub, attending on a Saturday means no sub plans!

Attending on a Saturday allows you to participate from the comfort of your own home.

Don’t want to give up your Saturday? No problem! Register anyway so that you have on-demand access to the entire conference after the live event concludes.
