Put away the red pen! Most programs tell students what to write. We show them how to write.

Growing Brave Writers is the essential training you need to be the delightful writing coach your children deserve. End writer’s block!

Together, you and your kids will:

  • play oral and writing games
  • grow a rich vocabulary
  • do research
  • freewrite (unblocks your blocked writers)
  • revise (brand new material)
  • edit (two strategies your kids will embrace)
  • polish fiction and nonfiction writing

Empower your kids to feel good about writing.

22 years, 100,000 students, 191 countries—we know what works!


This program works for a wide-range of children. Perfect for children who can read easily and handwrite comfortably.

Each chapter contains:

  • A coaching guide for a writing practice
  • A writing activity with detailed instructions
  • A checklist for completion
  • A sample written narrative of skills mastered

An appendix features:

  • Writing samples for the activities
  • Directions for how to use the program in co-ops and schools
  • A planning model to apply to your calendar

Growing Brave Writers is a 200+ page black and white PDF file. It’s non-consumable, and works well with students of all ages (8–18). It’s designed to support a writer doing any kind of writing, including assignments in other programs or classes, for homeschooled and traditionally schooled students.
