Writing Resources

child_writingWriting can be a frustrating business. Unlike Math and Science there are often no clear rules to follow, no steps to take to get to the right answer. Yet writing remains an important life skill, even in today’s technologically advanced society. Sending emails, creating presentations, writing applications or filling out reports, most adults write in their day to day life. And explaining how to write can also be frustrating, as most of us make writing choices based on intuition and feel, things which are difficult to describe or give reason for.

In order to help, here are some resources on explaining the craft of writing. Whether your child is frustrated with writing essays, book reports or stories, or would just like to learn more about writing, these resources have been selected for authors of all ages!
