Writing classess for Home School Youth

I am very excited to be an approved vendor for Sky Mountain & Inspire Charter schools. 


I love working with young writers'; their funny, honest, and amazingly creative. My overall teaching philosophy rejects the "one size fits all" method so I spend a lot of time developing lessons and activities to meet students' individual needs. This is why I limit class sizes to 10 students each.  


The workshops/classes below are designed for those who love to write, and those who find it a challenge. Your child will build confidence, learn how to beat writer's block, and strengthen critical thinking skills.


See below for a quick description of our current course offerings. 


All courses lead by Desiree Kannel and are held at the Namaste Center in Downtown Long Beach.
