SO! You or your son or daughter want to be a writer!
Contact me if interested.
Welcome to the Young Writers After School Program (part of NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month: http://nanowrimo.org/ ) where your child will have an opportunity
to learn fun writing skills, learn to compose a short story, edit their
work, and then see it manifest into a published anthology! Children
will also learn valuable life skills as they organize and promote a Book
Launch in the spring.
This after school program will run on
Fridays 2-6pm (open sessions, come anytime within these hours) from
September 26th through February 27th. There are 20 planned sessions
(October, November, January, February). September session is an
introduction for parents and children. December is open and free for
extra writing practice over the holidays. When the session is over,
there will be a formal book launch in March and every student will
receive a free copy of the anthology.
