SUMMER CREATIVE WRITING COLLABORATIVE

Avoid Summer Brain Drain!

Can you feel it? The sun has emerged and summer is right around the corner! For many children, summertime is when books collect dust and the “break” begins. While fun and refreshing, this break has downsides: it can lead to the dreaded summer brain drain — a time when learning and engagement decide to hibernate until fall.

 

The Creative Writing Collaborative is a 6-week interactive online creative writing course for ages 7 - 14. It was designed to inspire students to write creatively, to strengthen their writing skills and understanding, as well as to provide opportunities to collaborate with their peers using unique play-based methods.
