What can family members learn about each other from writing together? What sense of community can develop between family members and across families as they write together? What areas of culture and community can be realized as families write together? These are the questions that fostered this current inquiry into a family writing project. Four families, connected through an urban community school, met together to write and share with one another. Excerpts of adult and children's writing is included and discussed along with the structure of developing a family writing project. Implications for classroom practices for teaching writing with children are discussed. (Contains 8 figures.)
