Creative Writing Coaching
Workshop 26 was designed for kids who love to write to share their work with other kids. But sometimes, working one on one is best for the needs of the student. Sometimes scheduling is tricky, or physical distance makes meeting in person impossible. Working one on one gives kids a chance to explore all the facets of their creativity at a pace that works for them, with materials customized to their interests and learning style. For all of these reasons I offer individual coaching in person and online. Scheduling at a designated day/time each week is preferred, minimum of three sessions.
Weekly in Person
We'll work with mentor texts selected to captivate readers and spark writing. We'll tease out elements such as character, world, action, plotting, etc., using selections to build and expand on the student's interest area and fortify areas that need strengthening. We'll work for an hour weekly on individual stories and poems. $100 per session
4 Week Online Package
We'll work with customized mentor texts to highlight the basic tools of creative writing (character, world, action, plotting, etc) using selections to build and expand on the student's interest area and areas that need strengthening. We'll work for an hour weekly on individual stories and poems. $300/4 sessions
Writing only improves with consistent practice. We'll follow the four week plan, and then expand and reinforce areas where students can use skill building practice. $590/8 weeks
Write Online with a Far off Friend or Family Member
Shrink the globe a little with creative writing with friends and family who live far away. We'll tailor the curriculum to the shared interests of all participants, and use customized mentor texts to build and expand on both student's interest areas. In the past, I've worked with students in New York, Korea and Southern California with great results. $50 per student, minimum of two, maximum 5. One hour for two participants, 1.5 hours for 3 or more.
