What Students Have to Say About Creative Writing for Kids

  • "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
  • 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

  • Students can sign up for multiple 4-week sessions.
