"Russell was a kind, generous, and funny person. He was a great friend and I was lucky enough to call him, brother. As a lifelong writer, he created original science fiction stories from a young age. I can think of no better way to honor his memory than to share his love of writing with the next generation of writers."

CONNECTING CHILDREN THROUGH LITERACY
We demystify the writing process by creating a safe space for our youngest authors to explore their thoughts and ideas. All children have stories to tell and each workshop begins with storytelling which is a way to build their own community of writers. During the workshop, we provide expert coaching to maintain focus and build creativity while maintaining authenticity. We make writing fun through storytelling both oral and written.
