NEW! Writer’s Notebook Workshop

What is a writer’s notebook? It is a special place where a writer can store and organize his or her ideas, prompts, stories, and inspirational content.

Participants will take notes based on all forms of communication, including quotes, lyrics, poems, memories, short stories, overheard conversations, reminders, photos, illustrations, and more! One example is finding a famous quote that you like and writing down thoughts that come to mind that are in some way connected to that quote. Self-expression can take many forms, including writing, illustrating, or collecting pictures.

Another possible example is practicing a state of mindfulness during nature walks. For example, during a nature walk, a student may observe a tree that reminds him or her of past experience. These are just two examples of the many ideas that children can address in their notebooks.

Participating in the writer’s workshop can also reduce a child’s dependency on technology. Getting them to use a notebook to jot down ideas, experiences, and passions is a healthy alternative to addictive technologies. Participating in this class will help your child become more self-aware of the downside of tech-driven pop culture. Your child’s writer’s notebook can even create the basis for a video game that draws from your writings and drawings. Taught by Kristy Samuldulski
