Kids Write! Virtual Writing Classes for Kids
Introducing our new online writing program for kids!
We want to encourage young writers, especially during these days when schools are closed, by giving them some new concrete skills that will help them become better writers and feel good about what they are accomplishing as young writers. Our classes combine instruction about craft and writing exercises, all at an age appropriate level. Classes are led by Lynn Rosen, owner of Open Book Productions and English, writing, and publishing instructor. (For more about Lynn see HERE.)
What people are saying about Kids Write!
Praise from a former student:
I really liked this writing class. I’m still enjoying writing the rest of the story I started during the class. We were given time and help to be creative and write what we wanted.
Praise from the parent of a previous student:
“My daughter, who is in 7th grade, took a class with Lynn in the fall. It was a great experience on so many levels. I knew my daughter was a talented writer but didnt know how to foster this talent without nagging! Lynn got the middle schoolers comfortable with her and each other right away so they could give each other feedback. The fiction piece my daughter ended up writing blew me away. The characters had serious depth and I wanted to read more! I know she is a better writer from this class! I highly recommend Kids Write for teens and tweens!”
BOTH SESSIONS ARE FULL. IF YOU’D LIKE TO BE NOTIFIED WHEN A NEW SESSION BEGINS, PLEASE EMAIL LYNN@LYNNROSEN.COM.
Class will meet virtually; details are below. Each class is 2 weeks long, includes 4 meetings, and each meeting is an hour and 15 minutes.
Cost per class is $85

KIDS WRITE! GRADES 3 – 5
DATE: Mon/Thur, April 16, 20, 23, 27
TIME: 11AM – 12:15PM
LOCATION: via Zoom
In this workshop, young writers will exercise their writerly muscles in a series of exercises designed to teach them about how to craft good writing in a fun way. They’ll learn about how to plan a writing project and what it means to write a good sentence, all in the context of exercises designed specifically for their age group.
KIDS WRITE! GRADES 6 – 8
DATE: Tues/Fri, April 17, 21, 24, 28
TIME: 2PM – 3:15PM
LOCATION: via Zoom
In this workshop, we’ll start to look at what it means to be a writer. What exactly, do writers do? What are the many professions in which writing plays a role? What are some different types of writing? Students will do exercises that explore a variety of writing styles and forms. Through this they will learn now only the rich variety of what it means to write, but also how they can intentionally control and create their own styles.
