I Coach Young Writers of All Levels
Which Writer are you raising?
The Rapid Writer: is talented to the point where they don't feel they need to try and just rush through: one and done. They need to learn the benefits of revision
The Reluctant Writer: sees writing as a punishment: it is hard, boring and pointless. They need to learn that writing can be fun, expressive and powerful
The Restless Writer: desires to write and is full of determination, yet they are plagued by doubt that sabotages their progress. They need to learn confidence
The Reflective Writer: is a deeply introspective and creative dreamer, who never writes a word. They need to learn how rewarding it is to share their ideas
WriteLikeCrazy is the online version of my creative writing workshops for kids:
WriteLikeCrazy is a support system, a mecca of actionable ideas and lessons for parents and teachers to use with their struggling young writer, whichever stage they’re in.
Since 2007, I've been teaching young writers through fun, supportive and unconventional writing workshops. I've watched these writers grow: My Reluctant Writing students found a love for words and a pride in their new skills. My Rapid Writing students learned the challenge and reward of revision. My Reflective Writing students found the discipline and benefit of putting their words to paper. And my Restless Writers found their inner voice and the courage to share their work. Sounds impossible?
Fresh posts weekly: tested & proven writing exercises, unique games, fun lessons, my favorite tools & resources and before & after stories of the young writers I helped grow. (See their work published!)
Each post includes actions you can take to inspire and challenge your young writer. Plus! Contests to enter.
