When we inspire one child to share his or her voice, it can inspire a generation to do the same. That’s the ripple effect.

We are hosting virtual workshops for young authors to encourage and continue their writing journey at home. All the virtual workshops will take place on ZOOM. Every month, we deliver three virtual workshops. Each workshop is 1 hour in length and starts at 1:00 pm or 2:00 pm depending on the date. Check the schedule and sign up to receive an invitation to register.

  • Brainstorm Bonanza – June 5, July 10, August 7
  • Mixed Bag Mayhem – June 12, July 17, August 14
  • Plotline Play-By-Play – June 26, July 24, August 21
