YOU ARE AN AUTHOR!

We all have stories to tell. Children are authors too, and this program will give them the confidence to share their ideas and stories and to BELIEVE that their ideas count!

AKK! IT'S A BLANK PAGE! WHAT DO I DO?

Staring at a blank page or not know how to revise the words you DO have can panic anyone. Yes, ANYONE! It's like staring into a dragon's mouth. But don't worry, we're going to have fun while we slay that dragon together.

WRITE YOUR LIFE...AND A LITTLE EXTRA

Life can be stranger than fiction! Our lives are filled with ideas to get the creative juices flowing. Remember, elaborating isn't lying. IT'S FICTION! Paper, pencil, and a sense of excitement are the only requirements.
