Elementary School Creative Writing
Gifted Arts is partnering with Summer At SLU to offer the elementary writing classes for summer enrollment. Students entering are given instruction in various writing formats including fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and drama. We use writing prompts to help spark the flow of expression within specific time frames. One of the biggest challenges younger writers face, and let’s face it—older writers too—is turning off the “inner editor” to get ideas and thoughts down as spontaneously as possible. Students are taught how to provide meaningful and constructive feedback to one another in an environment designed to be fun and inspiring. Just like in the middle and high school classes—grade levels are combined.
When July 1-July 19 from 9:00-11:30, Monday-Friday
Where Classes will be held at Saint Louis University, St. Louis Art Museum, and St. Louis Zoo
