Creative Writing Workshops offer children of all ages avenues towards understanding and experiencing the creative writing processes. Personal essays, journaling, and storytelling compel students to take a chance and compose pieces that are salient to their perspective. Through prompts, the students write beyond the facts and chronicle events to create essays and storylines that are fun to write and a joy to read. The workshops include the editing and researching processes and review the value of kind critiques.  School author visits and professional development workshops are available live or through a virtual platform. 

 Four  Stories Served Around The Table Creative Writing Workshops are available NOW:

  1. Becoming Daily Bread is an author presentation and reading of how Daily Bread came to be. Listening to stories and understanding the backdrop of place and time are key to weaving a compelling tale. Students are encouraged to participate and brainstorm stories.   
  2. Journal On! A Writer’s Daily Workshop presents the value of daily journal practice for both students and teachers. Journal writing is a creative outlet. With practice, the written words paint the pictures and feel the emotions of the moments. Memories stir. Reflection reveals paths, solutions, and gratitude. Storytelling is born. Students are guided with prompts and strategies to create a means to fit journal writing into their day.
  3. Writers Write Workshop presents the core of written storytelling. Compelling personal experience stories, tales told around the dinner table or in the cafeteria, and reminiscences of people who touched our lives all have a voice that draws a reader into the journey. Students have the opportunity to interview, write short narratives, employ editing tactics, and participate in a kind critiquing session.
  4. Creative Writing With History Workshop takes students through the research process of writing historical fiction. Every major event has had a ripple effect on ordinary people and their stories. Finding and reading through interviews, articles, photographs, and maps are part of the process (and the fun). The styles of dress and hair and what people ate during a specific period provide the details that make a fictional story, in a period of time, believable. Students will brainstorm a premise during an era they are currently studying and use a template to guide their research.
