Welcome!
    
Writing Adventures for Kids offers a place to imagine, play with images, make word tickets, pen poems, start stories, share snacks, slow waaay down, and relax. No grades, no gold stars, no ringing or blinking cell phones. The aim: for kids to take a break from life's fast pace and surprise themselves using the analog tools of pens, paper, and imaginations! Writing is learned by play, imitation, and innovation!

Writing Adventures for Kids is inspired by and created for children/tweens/teens.
I'm  fortunate to work with some of the best minds and hearts: those steeped in the presence of childhood! Student-writers share the terrain and maps of the dreaming-doodling sides of their imaginations. I create fun and dynamic writing experiments. As a Poet in the Schools and later as a writing guide at The Writers Nest, I wrote RIP THE PAGE! (with Russian and Korean translations); LEAP WRITE IN!, WRITE BACK SOON! Adventures in Letter Writing, and Rip ALL the Pages! 52 Tear-Out Adventures for Creative Writers (ages 8 & up). All books available internationally through Penguin Random House with generous Educator discounts.

I appreciate YOU joining my Patreon team of supporters at a tier that works for YOU,
to allow more kids a seat at The Writers Nest table!


Writing Adventures for Kids includes: Magic Story Mondays, Pop-Up Teen Thursdays, Fourth & Fifth Grade Fridays, Haiku Hunts, Poetry Illustrating, Snappy Story Starts, Hidden Treasure Adventures, Dialog Eavesdropping, and MORE. Patron supporters make scholarship spots possible for kids & kids-at-heart to put their inner worlds on the page. When 50 supporters are reached, a Writers Nest Anthology of Student Writing will be created. YOU receive the first print run!

Artists can't do it alone. Thank you, (thank you!) for getting what this is about...
& for supporting a new generation of writers!
