4 *NEW* Online Writing Classes
A new school year and four new online classes!
Thinking back on the last few months, when were your children the most engaged in learning? Be it a new card game, the latest shark video, or the recently built beaver dam in the backyard creek, your kids readily explore learning opportunities that tap into their passionsand curiosity about the world.
Passion and curiosity are also key components of the writing process. When children dive deep into their obsessions, the writing that emerges is compelling to read. These words represent a child’s vibrant inner mind life transcribed on the page. Who wouldn’t want to read that?
Your young authors want what all writers want: the chance to choose what to write about, to write on their terms. When children take the reins, they stop dragging their feet and complaining about writing. And their writing comes to life!
We’ve created four new online classes that will set your writers’ imaginations on fire!

Back by popular demand!
Have you ever been intrigued by an old newspaper clipping, family photograph, or advertisement? Do you love to dive deep into historical periods as part of your homeschool experience? Perhaps you’ve longed to put yourself in a moment in history, to take a good look around, sample the food, talk to the passersby, and listen to all the local stories.
We have just the class for you to take this passion to a new level! Join us for a historical fiction writing experience like no other.
Close your eyes and think of your favorite song. What do you love about it? Perhaps it is the way words are tied to melody, or the story that is told, or how that song makes you feel when you listen to it on repeat. The job of the songwriter is to bring their story, told through song, to life.
We recognize that teens have much to say and that songwriting is a wonderful outlet for a young writer’s biggest ideas and deepest longings.
Music and lyrics—the bread and butter of the budding songwriter—will be the entry point for a class that uses poetry to examine the importance of powerful association and vivid vocabulary in songwriting.
