Writing is FUN.
Fun, we tell you!


Especially when it's combined with bookmaking, illustrating, and painting.

Or when it involves dancing and creative dramatics.

Or when you're writing and making art with kids in faraway countries.

That's how we teach writing. Check us out.


 

New Workshops, New Website...Coming Soon!

That busy hum you hear is the sound of all the exciting changes that are taking shape here at Blue Planet Writers' Room. We don't want to spoil all the surprises, but here's a hint of what we have planned for the coming months:

♦ New workshops for kids who love to create stories and make art

♦ New programs for teens who want to hone their creative writing skills and learn about illustration, photojournalism, comics, and more

♦ New international initiatives that will connect South Florida students with kids overseas to create beautiful, meaningful projects

♦ New opportunities for talented young writers to gain visibility and recognition for their work

♦ New ways to volunteer and impact the lives of creative, deserving young people

♦ New events, a new website, a new logo...

Get the idea? We're working round the clock to make all these fabulous things happen just as quickly as we can...and we can't wait to share them with you. Stay tuned to this website, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter, so you won't miss anything as we start rolling out the excitement!




What Else We've Been Excited About This Year:

♦ Connecting local kids with students at the American International School in Bamako, Mali

♦ Linking kids in Florida with kids at Habla: The Center for Language and Culture in Mérida, Mexico

Our students have been crossing borders and connecting cultures, using the internet to write and make art together. And thanks to technology, they've even been meeting each other "in person."
