"Kelly's expertise is the narrative and her students believe they are storytellers. As a published writer, she brings authenticity and agency to her classes. Parents packed the room of Kelly's writer cafes to hear the students' written word and were stunned with the product."
Kathie Freer, Head of Ruffing Montessori School
"My son's love of reading and writing has escalated exponentially since his online classes with Kelly. He is always asking, 'When is the next workshop? I want to show Kelly what I wrote!' For a kid who was in speech therapy early on in life, and came to reading late for his age, to have him be excited about his newfound love of communicating through writing, brings an incredible amount of relief."
"Kelly's online creative writing classes have given me the opportunity to connect and share with other teens my age who are passionate about writing, just like me. It's hard to find spaces like this with such an enthusiastic and experienced teacher where everyone can feel comfortable being vulnerable when sharing their writing. Even online with people from a variety of places, I've come away with confidence, inspiration, and lasting connections."
My 12 year old daughter attended multiple classes as they were an excellent extension for her writing. She really enjoyed the discussions with like-minded children and always left the sessions smiling.
