Creative Writing Classes for Kids & Teens
The Muse Writers Center is excited to offer several great creative writing classes this fall for young writers (ages 6-8 and 9-11) and teen writers (ages 12-17). Advance registration is required for all courses, and the registration period is now open. Classes are held at The Muse Writers Center (2200 Colonial Ave. Suite #3 in Norfolk's Ghent Neighborhood (23517)-in the Ghent Market Shops). Full course descriptions and registration information are available at www.the-muse.org.
Returning students receive a discount on tuition. And, as it is our policy to never turn a student away who cannot afford a class, we have created a robust tuition assistance program and offer it freely to those who need it.
