2021 WRITING WIZARDS: VIRTUAL ON ZOOM

This winter, Writing Wizards will meet for four fun-filled Saturdays on Zoom. No matter the class, 2nd-8th graders will be challenged to create outside the box, use their imagination, and expand their horizons—all from the comfort of home.

This isn't your typical virtual learning experience. We work hard to preserve the classic Thurber fun you know and love. With multiple class options, you're sure to find something your student will enjoy!
