Young Writers’ Workshop – Winter/Spring 2014

Announcing the 2014 Winter/Spring Writers’ Workshop. See revised schedule below. Registration is currently open.

The Winter/Spring Writers’ Workshop will begin on Saturday, Jan 18th , 2014 for Grades K- 8 and is a twelve week workshop spanning across four months. Scroll down to the schedule for exact dates & times of all classes. All classes will be held on Saturdays.

Winter & Spring classes have been combined into one long workshop, so as to enable the writers to learn and practice all the concepts well, and use them throughout the second half of the school year.

Please note that there will be no writers’ workshop offered in Summer 2014.

As always, enrollment is limited and registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The class size is small and within each class, students will be grouped in clusters of three to four.

The small class size allows for individual attention to each student. This helps foster a sense of belonging to a supportive learning community in which students can feel comfortable exploring new directions in their writing and thinking. Trusting one’s own language and voice, learning to think for oneself and in collaboration with others— these are the qualities and skills that the workshop strives to develop.

For new writers, an Initial Assessment & Parent Orientation will be held on Saturday, Jan 11th from 1:30 – 2:30 PM and 3:30 – 4: 30 PM. This session must be attended by the new writer and at least one parent. (Plan to attend any one session. Indicate your choice in the registration form.)
