Creative Writing for Children

Girl writingLearning to write is one of the most important skills kids can learn.  And most kids enter school with an enthusiasm for writing—as a way to express themselves. Creative writing not only allows kids to express their feelings, it helps them clarify their own ideas and beliefs, and discover what they know or think about a topic. Here’s how you can foster your child’s creative writing skills:

Helping Your Child Discover Their Inner Writer - Learn how you can prepare your child for creative writing through play, conversation, reading and exploration. 

Five Tips for Hosting a Writing Club – Writing doesn’t have to be a solitary activity. Invite some kids and let kids’ creativity play off each other.

Writing Prompts for Kids – Help your kids’ imagination run wild with these prompts which can be tailored for writing clubs.

Writer’s Roundtable - Judges from the PBS KIDS’ Writers’ Contests give insight on the creative process and tips on how parents can encourage kids’ creativity.
