Have an imaginative 7-12 year old kid? Here are 2 great ways to nurture their imagination (and their creative writing skills) this summer.

Sign up for tutoring or a group workshop with Flatiron-based Andrea Scully of Pencil Heads, who recently sold a screenplay to Walt Disney Studios and wrote several episodes of the PBS show Super Why and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.

  • Private Tutoring: One-on-one writing sessions include warm-up exercises, as well as lessons in outlining, plotting, and character development. She will  teach your kid how to organize thoughts and color every story with bright and shiny details. Email thepencilheads@pencilheads.com or call 917-409-7483 for more info.
  • One-Day Workshop: The Pencil Heads Creative Writing Workshops encourage kids (ages 8-11) to unleash their imaginations directly onto the blank page. Each workshop includes exciting improvisational games and fun writing exercises. Next one is Sunday, June 10th from 1:15 pm – 3:15 pm at 131 W. 72ND Street. Learn more and enroll at www.pencilheads.com/workshops.php (Space limited to 10 kids).

(The Pencil Head kids even got to write lunch reviews for the New York Post last year!)
