How Creative Writing Builds Your Child's Life Skills
In this live online workshop for parents, we'll explore how the challenge (and fun!) of creative writing supercharges your child's emotional literacy. Author and Executive Director of Society of Young Inklings, Naomi Kinsman, will provide parents with an outline of the short story-writing process, strategies for supporting youth writers along the way, and tools from Society of Young Inklings to deepen their writer's engagement and growth through the writing process.
