Writing is essential for success in today’s world. Through writing we educate, inspire, motivate, and lead. Through writing we share moving stories, persuade others of our viewpoints, and express our creative visions. Strong writers not only have higher rates of success in high school and college, but are also often more skilled at critical thinking, communication, and teamwork. In this course, students will learn the power of writing and discover how finding their voice as a writer can lead them to be more confident and articulate individuals and, in turn, set themselves up for success.


Students in this course will improve their writing skills through a variety of writing styles and genres. We will explore how to think like a writer, how to write about ourselves and the world around us, how to write to persuade, and how to unleash our inner creativity. Students between grades 6 and 9 are welcome.
