I’m Dee White, author, book reviewer and mentor to young writers.
Welcome to my new blog and online writing workshops atÂ Writing Classes for Kids.
I’m startingÂ Writing Classes for Kids because I’ve had so many enthusiastic young writers contacting me wanting to learn more about writing, but they can’t make it to my weekly writing classes or school holiday workshops.
The good thing aboutÂ Writing Classes for Kids is that the lesson plans for my classes will be available as downloadable PDFs so even if you’re a teacher or home schooler, you will be able to access them from anywhere in the world.
To start with, I’m going to be offering two lesson plans for building characters and writing for fun.Â Â There will be separate materials for Primary School and High School writers.
Also at Writing Classes for Kids, you’ll get to know Tuti, the Malaysian Tapir who will help meÂ take you on a wild, creative journey into the world of your imagination and beyond.
Tuti is the creation of illustrator, Ruth Palamountain who I met when I was at school and we have been best friends ever since.
Tuti and her family are endangered animals so she has her own story to tell too, and she’ll be sharing it on Writing Classes for Kids.
Classes will be starting in October. For updates on the courses and how they will work, you can subscribe to this blog.Â In October, we’ll also be having our first writing competition with lots of great prizes to be won – so stay tuned.
More about the courses will be available on the ‘Courses’ page on this blog (COMING SOON). For lots of great tips, you might also want to check out the page, “Want to be a Writer?”
In the meantime,
