Hello fellow writers,
Children’s creative writing classes are not just about learning ways to get our ideas and stories on paper or computer; they are also instrumental in establishing a link to a community of writers.
Writers spend a lot of time alone. The best way to grow as a writer and not fall victim to blocks and isolation, as well as to build a support group, is to seek out others in the writing and creative arts community. We are a family of creatives and we thrive in the synergistic environment of our peers.
I hope you will sign up for a creative writing course with us and join our family. We look forward to meeting you!
