Creative Writing for Children

Hello everyone! I'm teaching a course for young writers on Eliademy.com (a site to make money on if you have some free time and talent, by the way!), and I'm trying to spread the word. If you or anyone you know is between the ages of 8-13 and is interested in writing a book (the…

Powerful Language

I haven't done many posts on the art of writing itself recently, so I decided to post about something I genuinely love about writing: Portraying emotions through fantasy characters, and in doing so connect to the reader so they can live the emotions through said characters.
