What Students Have to Say About Creative Writing for Kids

  • I love writing, and I love listening to stories that other people write.  I think the feedback is helpful, and I like sharing my writing," --Nishka
  • "It is amazing to see and hear other people's writing.  The class really inspires me to write stories of my own and to write to the prompts." --Jacob

Logistics and Fees

I require a 4-week commitment with payment for the four weeks in advance.  Students can sign up for as many 4-week sessions as they'd like.

The cost is $20-25 a week depending on your family's finances.  I accept Venmo, PayPal, and Zelle.

Please Note:

This is a group for middle schoolers who enjoy writing, rather than a remedial writing group.  I am also available to tutor middle school students in writing, reading, and organizational skills either online or in person.
