Creative writing is one of the most important skills kids can learn. It not only allows them to express their feelings, it helps them clarify their ideas and beliefs, and discover what they know or think about a topic.
The Ivy wants to help your child develop their creating writing skills. By pairing young writers with published authors, we want to unleash your child's imagination and help them discover how much fun writing can be. The skills they will develop through our carefully crafted IvyKids Writing Workshops will improve their literacy, encourage their creativity and build their self-esteem.
In IvyKids’ inaugural hands-on workshop, Michele (Antipodes and Life Before) will show young writers how to generate good ideas. Michele writes contemporary fiction for adults and young adults, often about family, friendship and the blurred line between the two. Workshop participants will walk away with at least one good idea for a story, tailor-made for them.
About Antipodes: When Erin Cerise steps off her plane in Christchurch, New Zealand, she’s determined to overcome her losses of swim team captainship, her boyfriend Ben, and her reputation. Her mother is certain studying abroad will regain Erin’s chances of a good future. Once Erin meets her uninspiring host family and city, though, she’s not so sure. With months ahead of her, Erin slowly begins to draw on the years behind her, one step back into her memories at a time. As she rebuilds herself from the other side of the world, she finds that although her life has been turned upside down and she’s far from home, every way she moves takes her closer to where she came from.
Michele will also visit with fans and sign books from 5:30-6. This portion of the event is free and open to the public.
RSVP to 410-377-2966 or MarthaAtTheIvy@gmail.com by May 5th.
