Want to fine tune your paragraph writing skills before school starts again in September? Feeling nervous about your expository or persuasive style? Join us for a week-long writer’s workshop where we will focus on the four different paragraph types—descriptive, narrative, expository, and persuasive – that form the essential building blocks of an essay. Throughout the course, each student will perfect their writing skills as they construct effective paragraphs on topics of their choosing, and will learn skills necessary for editing their own work and that of their peers. Join us this August for an intensive writing refresher that will ensure that you begin the new school year with confidence!

Course instructor Ms. Laura Elgee brings four years of editing experience and a decade of teaching experience, as well as a love of literature and writing. Currently she is one of Elmwood School’s “Elmwood Edge” tutors.
