Writing (mostly) nonfiction with kids
Over the past few summers I taught writing at our local Creative Kids Camp and we put out a newspaper. Each day I met with different camp groups, ages five through 13, for about 50 minutes at a time. They wrote. They questioned. They drew amazing cartoons. And all of us laughed. This is definitely something to do again.
