Does your child love to write?
The Junior Writers' Workshop will immerse them in the writing process. They'll use age-appropriate computer illustration and word-processing programs to create an original story.
They'll learn about content/ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency and the basic conventions of writing through individual and small-group instruction by trained instructors and Susquehanna creative writing majors.
We'll nurture your child to grow and improve, encouraging confidence and communication skills in an engaging environment.
Experience with computers and familiarity with word processing is recommended.
