Choose Your Own Odyssey:
How to Support Your Creative Child as they Chart their Own Course

Creative writing is joyful, but it also develops essential skills such as:
  1. Vision: Seeing a story in their minds and bringing that story to life
  2. Empathy: Connecting with characters and exploring their points of view
  3. Growth Mindset: Identifying revision opportunities and crafting a story into a more fully-realized experience for readers

Whether your child loves to write, animate, build game-worlds, create scripts, film videos, direct theatrical productions, or illustrate graphic novels—they are a storyteller. What if your child could develop that artistic gift, and also build a powerful set of life skills to prepare them for whatever life brings next?

In this live online masterclass for parents, we’ll explore how creative writing awakens and builds lifelong learning skills such as goal setting, resilience, problem-solving, adaptability, and critical thinking. Author and Executive Director of Society of Young Inklings, Naomi Kinsman, will provide easy, practical strategies you can use to support your writer as they tap into their natural curiosity and creativity.

You and your writer don’t have to go it alone on this creative odyssey. At Young Inklings, your writer can connect with a community of peers and apprentice with mentor-authors in a variety of ways. We’ll show you how, and also share a range of tools and opportunities your writer can utilize as they cast a vision for their year and dive into a self-designed, self-motivated challenge.
