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

When your learner develops writing skills and masters storytelling, they make this innate process more efficient and controllable. In this way, creative writing sharpens critical thinking, builds effective communication and interpersonal skills and increases self-confidence. The benefits of creative writing are endless!


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.
