    What kids will learn and deliver:  

    • Using beloved stories and poems as models and inspiration, we will coach your children to develop a writing discipline that will give them the confidence and structure to keep creating long beyond our final session
    • Kids will design and finish a manuscript for novel/short stories (Week 1-5) and a collection of poetry (Week 6-10)
    • Along the way, they’ll learn how telling stories can strengthen their poetry, and how their poetry will make their prose more beautiful and more powerful.
    • They’ll get the tools to blast through writer’s block, the vision to see stories in the world around them, and the voice to shout their words to the rooftops of the world.
