Your child authors their own fiction story and "publishes" it!

Writing Wizards

In Writing Wizards, we foster a love of writing by guiding students to write and publish their own real book! Using novels like Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia as inspiration, each class designs a fantasy world that includes major and minor characters, fantastic settings, an extended backstory and a world of wonder.  The authors use artwork and brainstorming to design plot twists and dynamic characters. Teachers guide the students, providing contextual mini-lessons on writing techniques that include the use of appropriate dialogue, detailed descriptions, sensory-rich word choice, and character, plot and theme development.   At the end of the course, students publish their first real novel—signed by our Writing Wizards!

Stories written by our "Writing Wizards"
Our writers create artwork to imagine a story "world" and setting before beginning their story.
"Katie's writing has changed so much since she took your Writing Wizards class. I remember her telling me about elaborating and using detail one week when I picked her up from Writing Wizards. I can really see that shining through in her writing now. Her stories are so much more rich in adverbs and adjectives." -Cindy Chiu, Bedford mother
