Description:
This program is suited to all levels of writers and is an opportunity for creative expression.

Using the imaginative arts (music, drama and especially illustration), children are inspired to become stronger readers and writers and to specifically create a broader understanding of such concepts as character, plot, setting, point of view, imagery, and style.
Our children are mentored by published children’s authors and editors and are given all of the tools to write and illustrate their book, which is then professionally published with full-colour covers and perfect-binding

Students participate together in a book club, reading books each week and participating in lively discussions and activities to stimulate the imagination. Books selected by the mentor to help improve reading and writing capabilities. 

Each week students produce written assignments that are corrected and edited by the mentor.  

In this workshop students work with a mentor to focus on the formal elements of fiction to develop, write, and produce a book that may be a novel, short stories, poems, and other examples of creative writing. 

Students can, and often do, repeat this workshop many times.
