Young Writers’ Workshop – Fall 2014

The Fall Writers’ Workshop will begin on Saturday, Oct 18th, 2014 for Grades K-8: An eight week intense writing workshop that will provide the necessary jump-start to prepare your students for the school year ahead .

Scroll down to view the schedule for exact dates & times of all classes. All classes will be held on Saturdays.

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 based on student aptitude and writing ability.

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, Oct 11th from 9:30 – 10:30 AM and 11:30 – 12: 30 PM. This session must be attended by the new writer(s) and at least one parent. (Plan to attend any one session. Indicate your choice in the registration form.)
