Knocking Out Great Creative Writing

Children will want to have paper and pencil handy for some entertaining impromptu exercises that will punch up their creative writing.

30 Minute Program

 

$99


Prose is writing that isn't poetry. In this creative writing presentation, Claudia helps guide young writers in becoming word wizards! She'll steer writers in the use of vivid verbs, awesome adjectives, and those things that help writing "sing" -- such as alliteration, assonance, and onomatopoeia (devices whose names are far more complicated than their usage!). Live interaction and brief exercises will help kids learn how to punch up their creative writing.
