For Kids

The Writer’s Garret is dedicated to bringing readers, writers, and communities together under one roof and providing a safe refuge to explore new ideas, study old ones, and to create, create, create!

Fostering this dedication, The Writer’s Garret partners with community organizations of all types to serve children of every background and life experience by offering specific programs, workshops and courses for kids.

Lead by diverse instructors, each course introduces students to the fact that they are writers with experiences and imaginations worth exploring.  This exploration hones not only writing skills, but our students’ abilities to think critically and communicate effectively. Our workshops are a hands-on experience with creative writing for every learning style, and the lessons don’t begin simply with pencil, paper, and seated students. Students use their bodies, they draw, they listen to music, they paint: they engage the literary arts through all possible avenues.
