Here is a new review for my Fiction Workshop for Kids.
It was posted on Amazon in Canada and on Goodreads by Susan’s Reviews. She gave it 5 stars.
This workshop provides middle school children with a simple, step-by-step approach to creating and developing a short story. All aspects of storytelling – plot, character, scene building, etc., are covered in the various chapters, which have interactive videos to guide the young writers as they write their sample stories.
Useful online worksheets are provided so that the young readers can develop future storylines without having to read or listen to the workshop again, if they don’t want to keep repeating the workshop for each new story they develop. I found this workshop informative and easy to follow, and the videos broke up the written word so that the short attention spans of young workshop writers will be redirected back to the task at hand. This workshop provides all the basic tools to create a full and interesting story, and the author provides and analyzes his own short story at the very end to illustrate how to use the various work boxes.
I highly recommend this workshop, which should prove effective to teach young writers on how to create their own short stories.
