What is Fun Creative Writing?

Fun Creative Writing was founded in 2011 by author, Terri Whitmire, with the goal of empowering young people to express themselves creatively through writing. 

Establishing lifetime tools for better writing, the dedicated professionals behind Fun Creative Writing cultivate a fun and engaging learning environment through one-on-one coaching, workshops, interactive writing courses, and after school programs. 

The national program extends to service public and private schools, home schools, and community centers, delivering inspiration and information to aspiring student authors and writers everywhere. We have proudly graduated thousands of students by elevating their innate talents and gifts.

 

Why We Do What We Do

To some, writing is effortless. To others, it's a constant struggle over technique, word choice, and writer's block. Why? Writing is a creative process, therefore each individual has a unique approach and experience with crafting words. Because of this, we have developed effective writing lessons and programs that play to students' strengths and promote creative thinking. Every child has talents and we're here to emphasize them.

Our customized programs and writing coaches instill writing confidence in children with useful tools and easy-to-grasp concepts. Imagine a day where your child no longer sits and stares at a blank piece of paper. Ready to sign up for a personal writing coach?
