Do you have a child that loves to write? Or one that would like to gain more confidence in his or her writing? My after-school writing workshops are designed help eager writers blossom and reluctant writers find their voices.
Currently, I am in the process of becoming a Writopia-accredited writing instructor. The Writopia method works because the participants are able to relax, brainstorm, experiment with writing exercises, laugh, and freely write in the genres they wish.
Writopia workshops are available to all young writers, grades 4-12, at Canterbury School, where students have access to a high-quality learning environment and the technology they need. If you’d like to offer your student a Writopia Workshop experience, please reach me via the Contact page.
Proof that Writopia works
I selected Writopia not only for the method employed, but also based on the successes of their student writers. In each of the past six years, Writopia students have won more recognition for their writing than any other group of students in the nation.
In addition to nurturing a community of enthusiastic writers, Writopia is well known for helping the reluctant or hesitant writer blossom and for addressing parents’ concern that their child has great ideas, but a tough time organizing thoughts into coherent stories.
The Writopia method helps young people navigate the rocky waters between idea and story. Parents have shared their feedback on the Writopia method here.
Writopia’s mission includes:
* Providing young people with the creative inspiration and intellectual environment that may not be available to them at school.
* Helping each student become comfortable with expressing himself on paper and to ultimately cultivate (or maintain) a love of writing.
* Providing an open, safe, and nurturing space for young people who are highly engaged in creative and intellectual endeavors and for young people who struggle with verbal and written expression.
