8 and up; enhancing writing skills

I notice that there is a creative writing program for teens. It would be great to have a simple writing program geared for children 8 years and up. It would be very basic and simple such as developing a book report, creating a simple book (NWP.org has ideas as well). Based on Michigan MEAP scores there appears to be a need for more emphasis on writing. Perhaps some student teachers from EMU and other schools might come in and help this (like you did with the Science programs.

Thank you for your suggestion. The library is continually looking for new programming ideas. I will definitely look for opportunities to provide writing classes for younger children. Our programming schedule is complete for summer, but it is a possibility for the future.
