Creative Writing Workshops

helping youth discover a passion for writing...

 

One of my passions is to help children and youth discover a love for writing. I offer one-on-one tutoring sessions as well as group workshops in creative and academic writing on a variety of topics throughout each year. All workshops include instruction, exercises, and an opportunity to complete a writing project. Workshops are typically offered in age-appropriate groups for one-hour sessions over the course of four weeks. Teen and adult groups have the option of a one four-hour class. Online workshops are available upon request.
