Children’s After School and Summer Writing Camp Classes

Creative Writing: Writing Without Rules
The class sidesteps the ‘how’ of writing with exercises and activities that free 8- to 12-year-old students to discover the fun of writing. Grammar and spelling take a backseat to creative expression.

Creative Writing for Boys
This class utilizes research that reveals specific needs boys in the 8- to 12-year-old range need to have met to encourage and support their writing. Like in the Writing Without Rules class, Creative Writing for Boys focuses on exercises and activities that free students to discover the fun of writing. Grammar and spelling take a backseat to creative expression.
