Writing for the Soul Workshop™ is offered as an Academic Success Program and we’ve been delighted with what others have had to say about our writing program! Participants access our curricula and so much more. Here's a couple of testimonials:
"I loved the workshop because I got to write what I wanted. I am glad that I can write that I am an author on my resume for a job. I had fun when we to Vintage Stock to sign books. I also liked it when I sold all the books that I did." -Moriah Cormican, Student
"I’ve been attending the workshop every Monday. I really like it! It helps me get stuff out on paper and not keep it inside." -Tadrien Hill, Student
"This workshop is incredible!!" -Jeffery Powell, North County Recreation Complex Manager
"It was fun to watch the kids get excited about writing as they learned about how to get what's on the inside out." -Duane Gruis, United Cerebral Palsy Heartland
"This is an opportunity to connect with our students outside of the parameters of school and promote literacy. The workshop offers instruction in writing, illustration, publishing, and marketing. The students will have a chance to become a published author through group and individual projects. The workshop gives them a platform from which to speak to the world. It also gives the facilitators a chance to demonstrate love and acceptance." — Naomi Austin, Educator in Missouri
Testimonial from Africa:
“The youth have been built up academically and more so socially when they have the opportunity to express themselves in the stories. They also enjoy coming together and belonging to a productive group other than be out there in the streets where they face being introduced into gangs. The Writing for the Soul Workshop program has been very productive, and we look forward to be able to participate more in the next year. We cannot fail to thank you for the money you send to us from the sale of the Pieces of Me series, where our stories are published. The money is used to buy utilities for our workshops plus helping out the needy members of our group.” –Joseph Mwaura, GPO Kenya
