The time has come! Our online classes launch the week of November 9!
I’m offering three different 45-minute to 1 hour-long one-time classes for kids ranging from Kindergarten to 8th grade. I will offer these classes more than once, and as time goes on, there will be longer and more in-depth classes made available. See below for details on our November schedule!
Show & Tell: Kids’ Writing
This class for kids in Kindergarten, 1st, & 2nd grade will be a great opportunity for students to bring a special piece of writing to share with their peers. Anything goes! They’re welcome to bring a story, a poem, a report – any writing they are proud of and would like to share. This is a one-time class, however, kids are welcome to come more than once!
Dates & Times: Tuesday, November 10, 17, 24 – 7:30 pm EST
Cost per student: $5 per student per session
Writing with the Five Senses
This class is for kids in 3rd, 4th, & 5th grades. In this one-time class, we will practice writing detail and description by tuning into our senses. We will look at photos of different places and use our imagination to write descriptively together. Students are encouraged to bring a photo of a favorite place to share and to describe their experiences there using the five senses.
Dates & Times: Wednesday, November 11, 18, & 25 – 8:00 pm EST
Cost: $10 per student
Creative Writing: Interviewing your Main Character
This one-time class is meant for students in 6th, 7th, & 8th grades. Students are encouraged to come with an idea for the main character for an original story they are writing. They will have the opportunity to share a little about their characters and their stories. We will then take time to study the Character Questionnaire developed by French author Marcel Proust, and we will answer the questions as if we were our characters. Students will receive a printable download on which they can take notes and answer the interview questions. This practice will help them flesh out their characters and bring them to life within the context of their story!
Dates & Times: Thursday, November 12, 19, & 26 – 8:00 pm EST
Cost: $12 per student
