Strokes of Lightning: Amazing Hero Stories The Bay Area Young Writers Anthology Volume I: Welcome to the wonderful imagination of Bay Area Young Writers! These characters and many more are the heroes in this collection of writings by 37 children, ages 6 to 13. Strokes of Lightning is the first anthology published for the Bay Area Young Writers Club, a growing community with over 100 members. These stories are culled from the many workshops that we teach in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our workshops include a weekly homeschooling group, a persuasive essay course, an after-school creative writing class at the Chinese American International School, Bay Area Young Writers Workshops, as well as a plethora of free workshops offered since 2009. Our dedicated young writers and their parents travel from all over the Bay Area to our programs in Mountain View, California. While our writers show varying levels of skill, all the entries represent hours of creative effort and revision. For us, what is most important is that these children are inspired to write for fun and can articulate their thoughts and ideas with power, clarity, and ease. Below are excerpts from Strokes of Lightning: Excerpt from The School of Diamonds ~ Julian Pennington (Age 12) Joe walked by the janitor?s room as he was going to his P.E. class. He heard people talking from the janitor?s room, but it didn?t sound like students. It sounded like thirty to forty adults talking and arguing. He looked through the vents to see a shiny metal door with a green, glowing, pulsating card insert as well as a number pad and a rectangular slot. This was strange because Mrs. Jones went in the janitor?s room almost every day. As he took a closer look, he noticed four security cameras, one in each corner. One was pointing directly at him! He knew the only way he could not be caught was to venture forward. He used a paperclip to pick the janitor?s room lock. After at least a minute, he had done it. Now I have to take out the c

The Writers Workshop

The Writers Workshop
$14.99

The Writer's Workshop takes an approach to teaching writing that is new only because it is so old. Today, rhetoric and composition typically proceed by ignoring what was done for 2,500 years in Western education. Gregory Roper, on the other hand, helps students learn to write in the way the great writers of the past themselves learned: by carefully imitating masters of the craft, including Cicero, Thomas Aquinas, Charles Dickens, Sojourner Truth, James Joyce, and Ernest Hemingway. By living in their workshops and apprenticing to these and other masters, apprentice writerslike apprentice musicians, painters, and blacksmiths of the pastwill rapidly improve the complexity of their art and discover their own native voices. Interspersed into chapters full of sound practical advice and challenging assignments are reflections on Great Ideas from Realism and Impressionism to Nominalism and Modern Science. Perfect for the college or even high school writing classroomas well as a marvelous book for homeschoolers and others who would like to improve their own writing The Writer's Workshop is a fine practical guide, and Dr. Roper a friendly yet demanding teacher-mentor.
