Creative Escape & Connection

Middle school brings unique challenges, and our middle school program meets the needs of students in the midst of this formative time. TIWP creates a supportive environment for students to escape into the creative writing process, where they can be playful and find joy in the stories and worlds they create. We also provide a safe space for students to address the challenges they may be facing through the writing process. Teachers encourage and model authenticity, peer support, and self confidence. Each session involves an inspirational reading, a writing prompt, and time to share and receive feedback.

 

As with all our programs, we use the Amherst Writing Method, a methodology rooted in the belief that everyone is a writer, that all feedback be positive, and that our writing voice will continually grow clearer and stronger, the more it is validated and encouraged.

  • 90 min./class at $60/class
     

  • Enrollment occurs on a quarterly basis, paid in monthly installments
     

  • Fall quarter will continue on Zoom, which we have been using effectively since March. If your child doesn’t absolutely love the first class (we pride ourselves on making it fun), we will provide a full refund!
     

To learn more, check out our list of 7 Frequently Asked Questions, our Note for Parents, What Girls & Parents Say, our Our Commitment to Girls and of course our online blog, Pens of the Pandemic, where all our writers get the chance to become published authors. (Our next anthology, Pens of the Pandemic, will be printed in 2021!)

Poetic Playlist

In this program, girls will explore the lyrics of celebrated female songwriters who have used their voices and their words as a means to challenge, inspire and comfort us. We will touch on story and song structure through a diverse catalogue of artists. As writers, we will be seeking the music of our lives, channeling our inner poetess and lyricist. Each writer will curate their own compilation of work influenced by music from the course collection and their own life’s playlist.
