What Now, What's Next, and Possibilities for the Future
Explore the stages of growth that strong writers experience as they develop. Parents will come away with a roadmap for the possible path ahead and practical strategies for supporting their creative kids now, through next steps, and as they move toward college and careers of their own. We will also explore how focused writerly development can help youth develop grit, empathy, and vision.
