I was fortunate to be involved with the 2021 Winter Writer’s Fest in Ravenna, Oh. This year it was virtual, but we had a good time being remote.

In the class I taught, I worked with kids to help spark their imaginations and help them make creative stories. We didn’t have much time, but we did write a short cooperative story. Each person supplied one line to the story. I think the kids were coming up with a better story than the adults.

Here are a couple clips from the class:

Where do you get ideas?

I hope to return to this fest and work with kids more on story creation.

Parents and Educators

My mission is to inspire kids to use their imagination and show them how they can create a fulfilling life. My focus is on stories - for books, video games, and more. I have teaching resources on my site for you to help them, including in each book and short story - yes, even the free ones.

Once in awhile I send an email with updates on the new material. Sign up to be informed and get some teaching materials along with stories for the kids to read and be inspired by.

Sign up now and get a brand new Town Magician story not available anywhere else!
