Is Kathryn G. McCarty teaching a Creative Writing Class to Kids and Teens?
I just received an email from Kathryn G. McCarty who says:
“In August 2011, I am teaching a Creative Writing Class for kids 10-16. The class is at the Orinda Community Center, Orinda, CA.
Could you please pass this on to parents who might be interested in enrolling their child? Or any Elementary School teachers who might know students who would benefit from this class?
Become inspired as you work on scripts, short stories, memoirs, fables, monologues, comic novellas, or poetry. This two week camp culminates in an online teen creative writing magazine showcasing student writer’s work – be published online! Camp is for ALL LEVELS of writers.
Mon- Thurs 8/8-18 10a-12p 2634S
Residents $183 Non Residents $201
You can sign up online at:
Writing samples from former students:
My first memories of creative writing are from the 2nd grade. I know that the “writing bug” starts early and needs lots of nourishment. I give students daily prompts, and they are encouraged to work at their own speed. Students have an opportunity to share their writing each day, and also learn how to give and take constructive criticism in order to grow as a writer.
All levels of young writers are welcomed in this class!
The two week session costs $180 for residents, $198 for non-residents.
Thanks for passing the word!”

Kathryn is a fun and encouraging teacher. I had a chance to be her student in a production of the Vagina Monologues, by Eve Ensler (a fundraiser for Community Violence Solutions in 2010) so I speak from experience. And, I’ve seen Ms. McCarty interact with young people; she’s a caring teacher.
