How to research, read, and write about things that make you say, “Oh, Wow!” and want to share those fascinating facts with others.
Where we get ideas and ways to ensure that characters are creative, plot is plausible, and dialogue sounds natural.
Details from our childhood—and our children’s—keep popping up in our writing. Something from 20 years or 20 minutes ago may appear.
For smaller groups with more interaction:
This covers the essentials of characterization, plot, and dialogue to keep readers tuned in, not out.
Weird, whacky writing prompts to knock writers block.
Choosing just the right word for the right effect. Detail does make a difference.
Ways to actively engage young readers in the past without affecting any timelines.
Quick fixes to troublesome texts.
Wow! So many choices. We’re open to others if you need something more custom-designed.
You can invite Mason and Marie to your school. They’ll share with your students their passion for writing.
The authors are versatile, given their background in journalism (newspaper and radio features and columns), writing short stories, Newspaper in Education series, and books (The Lost Dispatch, 48 Hours, and UFO: Unidentified Feathered Object), plus teaching English and Communications.
Mason and Marie are also very well behaved and have been coached on classroom etiquette by their four children who have taught them how to avoid embarrassing themselves in front of young people.
