Writers editingOur Author Series goes deep into all aspects of the creative writing and publishing process. We suggest that After-School Enrichment Coordinators schedule the total year series in their line-up of after-school classes.  Offer Aspiring Authors in the fall to get the basics in creating and publishing and then immediately follow up with The Bestselling Author in the winter to hone their craft to master their story writing skills.  Wrap up the end of the year with our NEW professional level in the series which hones their craft to mastery in character and plot in the spring.  It’s a win-win! 

presenting a bookUsing a unique two brain approach in a positive and friendly environment, students are inspired to write and “publish” their own book.  This is a fun and challenging eight week adventure where each student will be an author, editor, and artist “hired” by the publishing company to create their masterpieces. As a company, we will assemble and bind the books creating professional results*.  Students will learn how to use the elements of story building to captivate their readers and enhance their illustrations to make their words come alive.  Their books will be a treasure to cherish.  In a culminating activity, we will have an evening with parents and friends to “Celebrate the Authors”.

*Time will be given in class to write and illustrate their books. Professional results, however, require additional homework as each student continues to work to complete a rough draft, edit for a final draft, and illustrate.

Our Aspiring Authors have learned the elements of story writing and book creation and had a taste of editing. But to be an author who wants to create a bestseller one must be able to critically look at their work and learn how to craft a mesmerizing, memorable story which captivates their audience. Authors will learn more tricks to great writing and master their editing skills. Once their masterpiece is transformed, the authors will learn the process of contacting a real publisher and submitting their magnificent manuscript. Prerequisite recommended: Aspiring Authors
