Elementary School Writing Groups

  Mess with Words  for grades 2-3

 Exercise your creativity in action packed word-play. Mess with storytelling, make out-loud poems, cut, and glue and dangle words. Tell, illustrate, act and imagine both solo and in teams.

Exercise Your Wild Imagination 

Give your creative brain a workout while discovering writers your own age! Try different writing ideas prompted by favorite books, drama games, art, or by odd and familiar objects. Write and illustrate. Play with language and surprise in your original stories and poems. 

Teen Writing Groups Mentor with an author while discovering writers your age. Exercise creativity and stretch the imagination! Share bits from favorite books, test different writing tips, prepare for publishing, and participate in an evening reading.
