Word Collectors


This is an introductory writers’ workshop for little ones who like to play with words as ways of expressing themselves. Provocations will be given to help our young writers engage with words in many ways – by writing them, by drawing them, by speaking them aloud – all with the purpose of introducing children to the magic of writing! This class is suitable for children at any stage, from those who are brand new to letters to those who are already writing sentences.
