NOTE: In 2024 there will be no programs for students grades 4-7 but we hope to bring programming back for younger writers in 2025

Workshops are a creative community engaged in the process of writing. They offer students time, choice, creative exploration, and discussion. They are led by excellent teachers who listen, care, and are able to coach students to develop their writing. Students choose their writing projects, and enjoy time to sketch, draft, rewrite, and review work with peers as well as confer with teachers. Workshop challenges students to lift the level of their work with models and mentor texts. Teachers encourage students to use a variety of formats and show them strategies for writing for the real world. Writing Workshop features various workshop choices for 4th to 7th graders.


Writing Workshop is for rising 4th-7th graders. Please let us know when you check out if your student would like to request to be placed in the same group as friends.

Goths and Geeks: Rebels of Poetry and Prose with Raven Sisco

Are you a fan of Harry Potter, Star Wars, or Percy Jackson? Do you enjoy reading and writing about the supernatural, the unexplained, or the distant future? If so, “Goths and Geeks: Rebels of Poetry and Prose” is the workshop for you!

Over the course of the week, we will read five different literary rebels in the genres of horror, fantasy, and science fiction; then, we will write our own stories and poems within those worlds (and beyond).
