  • Enrollment occurs quarterly and tuition is pro-rated depending on the day you register. You can read about tuition here.
     

  • If your child doesn't absolutely love their first class, just let us know before the second class and we will provide a full refund. We want your child to choose writing, purely for the joy of it!
     

The Art of Storytelling focuses on finding joy and confidence through writing. Students will learn about the various components of writing stories, and will work on developing their own unique voice through testing out a variety of genres. This process will involve playful writing prompts as well as self-reflection. Each session involves instruction on the "art of storytelling" along with an inspirational reading, imaginative writing prompts, and time to write, share and receive feedback.

 

At The Intuitive Writing Project, we use the Amherst Writing Method, a methodology rooted in the belief that everyone is a writer with their own unique voice. We support the discovery and development of one’s voice by ensuring that all feedback remains positive, focused on the strength of the writing. The more students write and share, the more they learn to believe in themselves, both as writers and as people.

To ensure that each student gets personalized attention and mentoring, we limit class size to 10. Each class is 90 minutes and meets once a week.

Is your child an aspiring playwright or an intrepid journalist? Is she obsessed with Harry Potter, Keeper of the Lost Cities, or a particular book series? Does she love hiking and poetry, graphic novels and sports. The Intuitive Writing Project is excited to create tailor-made classes for small groups of kids. Gather a group of friends together with similar interests and we will match you with the perfect teacher.
