Dear Parents:

Writing is one of the most important skills for academic success. A good foundation will help your child succeed in today's academically competitive environment. The Teens-Helping-Kids Club*, a high school student volunteer group, offers a one-of-a-kind interactive online creative writing workshop for the rising 4th to 8th graders. No driving. No waiting. We deliver our instructional services directly to your home through the Internet so that your child can learn from the comfort of home. In addition, this workshop will expose students to a paperless e-classroom, net meetings, online collaboration/teaming, etc., much of which they would not encounter in a normal curriculum until high school or beyond.

What is covered?

Your child will learn basic writing techniques such as imagery, internal dialogue, similes, metaphors, flashback, personification, and parallel structure, as well as advanced techniques such as symbolism and word choice. In addition, your child will learn how to begin a story, how to expand the climax, and how to end a story. During the workshop, we will teach 12 tricks of the trade and discuss how to interpret a writing theme - a critical thinking skill essential to academic success. To help your child create vivid expressions in their compositions, this workshop also covers common similes, proverbs and idioms.

How it works:

This is an online writing workshop - a computer with Internet connection is required. Each student needs to submit one piece of original work every two weeks, in addition to biweekly reading assignments and group lessons. Reading assignments include selected sample stories and writing techniques. The instructors will review, edit and comment on each student's writing in detail. Students are required to revise their compositions before they submit them. For details, please visit 2021 CWW.

Our instructors:

All of our instructors are passionate about literature and are dedicated to helping kids become better writers. Your child will interact with other creative minds in his/her grade level and receive individualized attention from our instructors.
