Kids can learn pretty much anything in this town: robotics, swimming, Spanish, circus arts, coding, clothing design–you name it and there's probably a class for it.
Writing, however, is one of those subjects kids get in school, but it also makes for a great extracurricular activity, especially these days with tweens, teens and adults condensing their deepest thoughts to 140 characters or simply captioning a snap.
There are a number of wonderful local programs that help adolescents develop their writing skills, including FREE options. Whether your kid is interested in creative writing, essays, novels, plays, or comic books, these classes are for aspiring (and inspiring) authors.
