More Young Minds to Mould --

--- into brilliant writers!

I've started a new series of creative writing classes for youngsters at New City Library. Normally I keep it 4th-6th grades, but my most regular attendee, Susan is now in the 7th, and has a couple of friends of the same age. The youngest is member is actually in the third grade, so she's very young - but clearly extremely bright and talented. Ten budding writers, boys and girls.

They all say they'll do the homework, even though there are no grades. We'll see!

I really enjoy teaching these kids. They are so talented.

Well, some of them are, anyway (!)
