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 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 answer questions if your student needs advice/support to tackle each step.
(Approximately 30-45 minuntes)
Students can work on the writing process at their own pace.
If students are unable to attend the live Zoom sessions, they may email questions to be asked to the guest author.
Links will be provided for viewing recorded Zoom sessions.
Your $25 registration fee includes 8 weeks of programming, a smencil, crayons, writing resources, and a blank book for publishing the story. What a DEAL!?
A few lucky participants will have their book illustrated and published!
