SHARE YOUR STORY

Our highly acclaimed Share Your Story Program is back and set to begin on January 31st! This 8 week "course" will lead your child down the path to authorship!  Aspiring writers ages 6-14 will participate in our step by step program to create their very own book! From "brainstorming"  to "final draft", your child will gain invaluable coaching & insight from real published authors! Weekly Zoom calls with these authors will reinforce the instructional videos and students will have an opportunity to ask questions and interact!  This unique,  exciting, and affordable program is truly a way to ignite a love of writing in your child! Sign up today for our Black History Month inspired line-up of dynamic authors that will be sure to inspire your author-to-be!

 

Each Monday at 8 am ET during the 8-week “course” your student will receive an email with an instructional video teaching/modeling a step of the writing process.  Your student will also get to hear from a published author and learn how they use this step in their own career. (Approximately10-15 mins)

Each Thursday at 1 pm and 2:30pm ET of the same week your student is invited to register for a live zoom call with other storytellers to meet the author of the week. Your student will hear one of their published books read aloud and they will also be taking questions if your student needs advice/support to tackle each step.

(Approximately 30-45 minuntes)

  1. Students can work on the writing process at their own pace.
