Last weekend Holly attended the PBS Writers Workshop for the second year. It is held at our local TV studio in conjunction with their children's writers contest. She really enjoyed it last year and once again, she had a great time!
The host is a gal from Live Paint, who is amazingly talented! She does a wonderful story telling selection that is very interactive with the kids. As she works her way through the story telling she brings it back to writing your own story and inspires the kids to include so much more creativity than they might have before.
For Holly this was a great kick off to writing. She has officially started her story this week and it is coming along nicely. Her story is due at the end of the month - she is looking forward to finishing it up and entering the contest. I am excited for her!
