Our Classes

We’ve Got a New Home!

On Monday evenings, we’re offering creative writing classes for kids in the Niagara Region at the Lab at Niagara-on-the-Lake Library.

Our writing room is a safe-space where writers of all backgrounds and levels of experience are welcome. We’ll also help you explore where you can submit your work to be published, writing contests for young writers, and we’ll tackle any writing-related questions that may come up. Our students are ages 11-16. We welcome older students too, up to age 18, but please email us first so we can place you in the best class.

Parents are always welcome to get in touch with us. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to send an email.

Classes are Mondays
6:30 – 7:30

Intro to Creative Writing

This class explores creative writing for kids ages 11-13. We’ll tackle different types of creative writing (blogging, poetry, short stories), how to find your ‘writer’s voice’, where to get ideas, and how to get braver about sharing your work with other people. Don’t worry, you won’t ever have to share unless you want to!

The fee for this six week course is $100. SPACE IS LIMITED TO 9 STUDENTS!

Tuesday evenings starting January 30th until March 6th

6:30 – 7:30
Ages 11-13

We’ll examine the basics of crafting a novel including conflict, character arc, dialog, setting, plot, pacing, genre and outlining. Students will leave at the end of six weeks with a novel outline and will be encouraged to bring their work to our on-going Word Play sessions to develop their book idea.
