Field Trips

Teachers can bring their classrooms to our writing lab to experience theatrical, fun writing. Working collaboratively, students create stories and each then produces an original ending to the story. All students go home with a published book and a sense of serious accomplishment. //details

Workshops Workshops


Our creative and expository writing workshops spark imaginations and teach writing fundamentals while appealing to the reluctant writer and the aspiring author. Autobiographical collages, food writing, and college entrance essays are just some of our offerings.//details
