A word after a word after a word is power

Writing for Girls

I watch my girls chase after a puck on the ice, dive in the mud to make the save, and careen confidently down the street on mountain bikes that put the banana-seater of my youth to shame.  But as I watch them go, and go, and go, I start to sense that I am spinning, calling for things to slow to a better pace.  Lately, the world we have given our children struggles to slow and falls short of offering time for reflection.  Our children need the time to muse, to be, and to write.


I have developed the writing program for young girls at Anno Studios to ensure that space is carved into their lives for writing and reflection, with an emphasis on finding one's voice in creative expression.  Courses are designed with specific age groups in mind, and topics will vary.
