After-School Creative Writing Clubs

Plumdiggity Creative Writing Club Instructor

What? A part time business opportunity to develop an after school creative writing program at the elementary school/schools of your choosing.

Why? Plumdiggity Creative Writers Club is a successful after-school program that can be replicated in elementary schools anywhere across the country.

Parents have an interest in quality after school programming. They appreciate the additional opportunity to further develop their child’s writing abilities. For students who are creative and enjoy writing, there are few outlets to hone imagination. Plumdiggity Creative Writing Clubs build writing skills and provides an outlet for creative written expression. The students also enjoy the social interaction.

How? Our training program includes the teacher’s edition of Plumdiggity! Developing Student Writers. Participants will become familiar with Plumdiggity!~the book’s 26 chapters, songs and poems, and participate many of the activities. We will do a variety of 14 week semester lesson plans. Additionally a portion of the training is developing a business plan, marketing and registration, learning how to to set up after-school programs in local schools, private schools, or neighborhood groups, setting fees, and how to order books for your students.

Where? We typically provide trainings in Atlanta, Georgia, but will travel if a school system wants to host a training program.

When? Training is held with a minimum of five participants. We aim to train in February and in early summer. This gives participants plenty of time to prepare for fall semester writing clubs.

Who? This program is typically offered to a mixed age group of 2nd- 5th grade students. The mixed group prevents competitiveness and fosters more of a “family” environment. It has also been taught to private middle school students on campus in which the day ended at 3:00 p.m.

Cost and Length? The training is 9 – 6:00 pm with a one hour lunch break and 30 minute afternoon break. The training includes the teacher’s edition of Plumdiggity!, lunch, beverages, and snacks, and several semester’s worth of 14 week lesson plans. The cost is 450.00.
