Why Creative Writing is Important for Children
Creative Writing Is Empowering.
Writing calls upon us to shape experiences and feelings into something another person can read and understand. That need to feel understood, to know that what you think or feel matters and can be shared, is universal.
Many children view the whole process of writing as mysterious and inaccessible. The good news is: anyone can learn to write and every writer has their own unique process. It’s a vehicle for communication, connection and creativity. It’s an opportunity to learn and grow, have fun and sharpen your senses.
Studies show that children who practice creative writing more often are generally better in other subjects too like math, science, and languages. The challenge of coming up with creative thoughts and solutions to narrative problems helps builds the confidence and discipline students need to succeed in other areas of life.
