Creative Writing

Your Learner’s New Superpower

With a quadrillion connections and as many neurons as stars in the universe, your brain is the most complicated object around. Amazingly, this noodely three pound heap converts the continuous informational onslaught you face into something you can actually understand: STORIES.

When your learner develops writing skills and masters storytelling, they turn this innate process into a superpower. Creative writing sharpens critical thinking, builds effective communication and interpersonal skills, and increases self-confidence. The benefits of creative writing are endless!

Writing Isn't Extra Curricular, It' S Trans Curricular

Discover the many benefits of creative writing. It fosters observation, flexibility and persistence: all powerful drivers of personal growth, no matter the subject. Your child will utilize the lessons they learn from writing for life. 1
Writing not only supercharges your learner’s ability to absorb, process, retain and retrieve information across disciplines, it also increases their tenacity while tackling complex material. We can get really geeky, but for now, consider this: as learners create storyworlds, characters and plot structures, they engage with the big picture and small details simultaneously and strengthen long-term memory.

  • Observation skills
  • Flexibility and adaptability
  • Perseverance to complete every task 2

Research shows creative writing raises math and science grades

Seriously! Creative writing isn’t just useful for English class; it’s brain food for STEM too. All human understanding lies within stories, so it follows that storytelling constitutes one of the most universally beneficial skills your learner can develop. 3
Your learner’s math and science scores will reflect improved pattern recognition, construction and extension skills. With writing, they also create personally meaningful contexts—whys to accompany the hows—that transmute rote to write.
    Storytelling improves your learner's ability to:
  • Integrate new material
  • Think critically
  • Recognize patterns

"Doubts are traitors": writing replaces them with confidence

The bard himself wrote, "Our doubts are traitors and cause us to miss the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt." Creative writing squashes those doubts, making your child ready for anything. Imagine, for instance, their pride when readers appreciate their stories. These emotions empower, fueling a confidence reservoir needed to lean in to and overcome life's challenges. 4
Find your voice during the writing process—it’s liberating! Besides making your learner comfortable with themselves, a strong voice transforms their interpersonal communication skills and could turn your wallflower into the life of the party.
