Children’s Workshops with Dana Robinson

Our Children’s Workshop is a lively and intellectually engaging program that introduces children to the art and craft of writing through storytelling and imagination.  Our program endeavors to entertain and foster creative expression, as well as explore the function and values of writing, stimulate our children’s imaginations, and clarify thinking.  Our goal is to teach our children to write compelling stories, with creative transitions, character desires, obstacles, climax, dialogue and resolve. Our programs are offered in partnership with Houston schools and educational institutions, and provide children with a critical set of skills and tools to navigate the human experience.  We believe creative writing offers children a safe space to make sense of the world around them, as well as a way to explore humor, narrative complexity, abstraction, and metaphor.  We also believe in having fun, encouraging whimsy and wonder, and being inspired to write!  Contact us for more information about how to bring our program to your child’s school or to arrange a personalized program for a group of children.  We offer programs for children in Elementary, Middle, and High School.
