These are sure to fill so if you know which session you want, SIGN UP EARLY! Fall Registration opens at noon EDT on July 27, 2020.

Our summer session sold out in record time. We’re anticipating high demand for your favorite classes this fall. Don’t wait to register—sign up when you KNOW which session you want.

We know that each student is different—that’s why we don’t offer broad, year-long classes or general programs according to grade. You can pick a class that targets EXACTLY what your child needs, right now. 

Brave Writer classes offer

  • Our trademark workshop style (perfect for your child’s attention span, too!)
  • Focus on one specific writing task at a time: fiction-writing, essay-writing, literary analysis, or journaling
  • writing coach who is published AND a homeschooler. No awkward questions about grade level—ha!
  • Positive, kind, instructive feedback that grows the writing in a way that feels empowering to your student
  • Low-risk! You’re committing to 3-6 weeks, not until next year! Who wants that!?

We have so many classes to choose from. Be sure to look through all the options and then prepare for Monday to sign up!

The Fall 2020 Online Writing Class Schedule is Up!

Psst…Be sure to take advantage of our special offer!

We get so many wonderful emails from our happy families, and even more during this stressful time. I wanted to share a quote from one to help you get a feel for how our writing program impacts families.

I think this particular season, during this unexpected pandemic, life became challenging for everyone, but I appreciated this online course at this time for our son to focus on, and I certainly appreciate his teacher taking this on and staying the course amid these added life stresses…so I offer my sincere thanks. The information and accountability and encouragement were all excellent.

Brave Writer is all about personal investment and connection. Our instructors give you a deep commitment of time and gentle instruction that leads to happy, improved writers.

Our writing classes are built from the workshop, writing support group model.

  • Each participant is valued as a person, not just as a student.
  • Writing feedback is detailed, friendly, and thorough.
  • Our instructors recognize that they have a sacred trust with your children and they aim to ensure that each student feels heard, read, and supported in deepening both skill and insight in his or her writing.

Boomerang Book Club: June 2020

Boomerang Book Club

Teenagers are invited to join our virtual book discussion club, conducted entirely online in the Brave Writer classroom.

Our book discussions are drawn from rich works of fiction that will easily fulfill the English credit requirement for literature for a year of high school.

Here’s what we’re reading in June in the Boomerang Book Club: Lord of the Flies, William Golding. Penguin Books Reissue Edition, 2003. 224 pages.

Before The Hunger Games, there was Lord of the Flies. A group of schoolboys is stranded on a deserted island after a plane crash. The lure of adventure free of adult supervision quickly gives way to fear as the boys start to turn on each other. Labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, even a vision of the apocalypse, Lord of the Flies has established itself as a true classic.
