Lekha After-school Writing Classes for Fall 2016

During the school year, Lekha Writing Center offers after-school writing classes to Bay Area students in grades K-12. All classes are taught the Lekha Way, with encouragement and support. We utilize visualization and verbalization techniques, creative play, illustration, and other low stakes writing activities that help students overcome writer’s block or any fears about writing. We want every student to enjoy a positive relationship to writing.

Registration is open now for our ongoing programs. This fall, we are teaching academic writing, creative writing, and publishing classes in Milpitas and West San Jose.
