Few subjects are more important, yet seem to generate more parent-child friction, than writing.
I have been asked to run a writers’ workshop this spring. This will be a pay-as-you-go opportunity: students do not have to attend every week. Instead, I will have six slots per week, strictly first come, first served. Reservations have to be made and paid for no later than Wednesday of that week, and payment will be accepted only by Venmo or Amazon e-card. No exceptions.
About my writers’ workshop
I have been a professional writer and a writing tutor for decades. I happen to believe that the most effective way for students (and adults) to become good writers is to work one-on-one with a writing instructor to help polish grammar, sentence structure, organization, word choice, and all of those little refinements that can make the difference between “adequate” and “good” and between “good” and “great.”
I am happy to provide assignments. But I would rather have students bring to the writers’ workshop something they are working on (a paper for a class, a letter, a poem, a field trip summary, a book report, an instruction manual, a newsletter, a research paper, a lab report, a short story, an application essay… anything).
This opportunity is open to all writers, from pre-K through adult, although most students who have expressed interest are in middle school and high school. Each session is $25. This is like having a private writing coach but in a small-group setting to make it more affordable.
You can register for one or more sessions using the link below. Please remember: a student’s spot is not reserved until it has been paid for. Because of the nature of this opportunity, there are no refunds after a reservation has been made unless the class is canceled due to weather.
