Lekha Writing Camps: Where Children Think Beyond the Book!

Lekha Writing Center develops a generation of children with positive relationships with writing. We use creative play, illustration, and other writing activities to help students overcome writer’s block or any fears about writing. Our methods help students write, free of the “internal critic” and toward their creative and academic success.

“I never thought that writing could be so much fun.”
—Sorjo Bannerjee, Lekha student

At Lekha, we acknowledge that a student’s writing is rooted in the student’s own experiences, education, and tacit knowledge of writing. Our instructors facilitate each student’s writing, guiding the student as they work and rework their pieces of writing. We encourage students to write extensively in our fun, nonthreatening learning and writing environment.

“If your child is interested in writing stories I strongly recommend this camp.”
—Viju Varghese, Lekha parent
