Website: Musing Our Children website

The Muse Reading and Writing Appreciation Week is coming to a school near you in October.

The Muse Reading and Writing Appreciation Week is a new initiative intended to reach school-aged children and parents across the world. Our goal is to introduce parents and children to local writers and authors who are passionate about creative writing and reading.

Delve into the imagination and bring a child with you!

Scheduled for the week of October 15-19, Reading and Writing Appreciation Week will reach around the globe. Authors, writers, and volunteers will visit schools and offer free handouts and information to anyone who would like to be involved in helping children and parents understand the value of reading and writing.

If you are interested in having a volunteer come to your classroom to read or to speak about writing during the week of Oct 15-19 please contact/email Lea Schizas at museitupeditor@yahoo.ca

Teachers, parents, and writers can remain updated throughout the year with tips, ideas, and readers’ thoughts and suggestions on how we, as a community, can ban together to help children understand the benefits of reading and writing via the Musing Our Children website: Musing Our Children website

Share the love of reading with a child or student and watch their world blossom!

Anyone interested in volunteering to read to children or talk to them about writing during the week of October 15, can contact/email Lea Schizas at museitupeditor@yahoo.ca or check out Musing Our Children website for more details.

Thank you, Elysabeth, for mentioning our group effort to help our young muses understand the importance of reading and writing.

Also, thank you for mentioning the conference in your blog. Both projects are very dear to me and valuable to writers, young and a bit older. :)

And another thank you for being one of the volunteer writers who will help shape the Musing Our Children project and website. The more writers willing to jump on board and offer their opinions, suggestions, articles, links and anything else that may help a child, a teacher, or a parent to further educate them on reading and writing, the greater the chance of getting our word out there.
