Offering Young Minds Creative Growth


Creative writing is a wonderful way for children to communicate personal messages, stories and ideas that they otherwise may not be able to articulate. Spending time writing with others who have an interest in writing is a comfortable way to learn and grow. This process fosters a respect for other people and their ideas as well as the written word. Creative writing helps young writers build confidence, take pride in work, develop creativity, improve literacy, increase general braininess, and have a lot of fun!


Our Goal


Our goal is to help children, ages 7-12  understand the world of creative writing, offering them a way to express themselves in many different forms. Children often associate the act of writing solely with school work. We strive to engage, entertain and encourage children to express authentic thought. What they think is so very important and worth sharing!


Instructed Classes


Writing classes are led by
Elyn Achtymichuk, B.A., M.A. Elyn is able to draw from a sound educational background in literature as well as offer children a uniquely youthful approach.
