“It was AWESOME…very fun and the kids were sure engaged even though it was Zoom.”

       - A teacher in Terrace, BC











Zoom 'Hands-on' Writing Workshop


This workshop runs for 60 minutes—at times the students work individually, at other times they work in pairs.  A variety of writing activities help students to develop characters and settings from their own experience.  Eric then suggests how students might develop a story making use of their character and setting creations.


Regarding the workshop, a Victoria teacher wrote to say: “It was FANTASTC! The kids were
amazing for a rainy afternoon, you would not have known it. This event really got them
thinking and inspired. Sometimes you just never know, but it was super.”
