Creative Writing

All too often, children are put off by Creative Writing by feeling they have to do it right.  Best Academy's Creative Writing class challenges students to think critically and creatively. We want to help students enjoy writing their own stories while teaching important writing skills.  Many institutions, including TJHSS, look for candidates who can skillfully express and translate their thoughts into words. Taught by one of Best Academy’s top English teachers, Ms. Margaret Diamond, this Creative Writing class will absolutely change your student’s perspective of writing.
