Mom, can I sign up for CWC?

I saw Lee Edward Fodi speak last night about how to teach writing to kids. Lee’s the co-founder of Creative Writing for Children, which offers all sorts of intensive workshops.

You know how sometimes you watch dancers on TV or on stage and you think that if only you grew up in a city, or had scads of money for private lessons, or started studying at the age of three, you could have become a professional? (Oh, shut up. It could happen.)

That’s how this talk felt. I would have LOVED to take a workshop like Lee’s as a kid. To spend a whole week, or a whole semester, talking about books and creative characters and meeting other kids who wanted to be writers? Paradise. In fact, as soon as I can figure out how to disguise myself as a 13-year-old, I’m signing up.
