The workshop demonstrates how children at all levels can be reached and challenged by the same material at the same time. Demonstrating how and why the brain needs to be warmed up before working, includes warm-ups for the brain, imaginary adventures students will picture clearly and become personally involved in, techniques in getting even the most reluctant writers to write gladly while at the same time challenge those who need extension. Removes self-doubt in creative writing, demonstrates the ability to travel faster than the speed of light and shows what it takes to make anything possible for our lives.
