Learn a writing process that embraces your opinions, your vocabulary, your mistakes and your personal experience. Learn how true and meaningful writing unleashes your best work.
This is a fun, yet intensive, writing clinic that builds on each writer's unique style and teaches students to write personal essays.
The focus of the clinic is to:
Encourage the writer's authentic voice
Play with several brainstorming techniques to discover writing topics
Practice rewriting and editing to polish ideas into clarity
Share and acknowledge writing
Students work in groups and one-on-one with teachers who support each student's strengths and learning style. All activities - even the afternoon teas - are designed to create a climate of trust, focus, motivation and joy, so all students leave knowing more about themselves as writers, speakers and thinkers.
All writing will be done in class, unless students desire to write further at home.
