A new session in our popular online writing program for kids begins in late May!
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 parents of previous students:
“We want to thank you for your fine work in teaching creative writing. We appreciate your careful preparation for each lesson, your clear way of explaining things, and above all your warm encouragement of all the students. This has been a very positive experience for our daughter and we thank you!
“My kids had an excellent experience in the class.”
“Very positive, fun, educational.”
“He looked forward to the classes and enjoyed the assignments.”
“The different exercises were fun. He liked the writing challenges. It helped her think about writing in new ways.”
“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!”
Class will meet virtually; details are below. The class is 4 weeks long, includes 4 meetings, and each meeting is an hour and 15 minutes.
Cost per class is $85
