Writing Classes with Kris Cordell

Hello everyone,

It’s that time again: time to register your child for a writing class!

My website (www.writingwithkris.com) has nearly all of the current class information.  Be sure to take a look at your options and share the opportunities with your friends and your homeschool group.

Let me highlight a few important details:
  1. I am now offering a literature-based writing class for 6th-8th graders at the Roseville/Rocklin location.  I need a minimum of 8 students to make this class work.  These classes are offered at Metro Calvary church.  More details are listed on my website.
  2. I am offering more online classes, including literature-based writing classes!  Be sure to check out this option and share it with your friends.
  3. Most titles of books that will be studied are not yet listed because those details are being finalized with the teachers. But you can be sure that the books will  provide a wonderful learning experience.
  4. Nearly all classes begin the second week in January and end the third week in March.  Specific dates for each class are listed on the website. 

NEW information:
  1. You may pay online by going to the “store” on my website.  Check out that option if it seems more convenient for you.
  2. I am offering research writing classes for students in grades 6-12.  Those classes will be held in Rocklin on Wed. afternoons, and they will begin at the end of Jan.  More details about this opportunity will be forthcoming.

To register:
  1. Simply reply to this email with the following information:
  • Child’s name (please indicate if you child is new or returning)
  • Child’s grade/class 
  • Payment method
  • Parent’s name
  • Phone number
  • I will reply to your email within a few days to confirm your child’s registration.
  1. For onsite classes, you must register by Tuesday, Dec. 12 if you want me to provide a book for your child.  If you register for an onsite class after the 12th, you will likely need to purchase the book.
  2. Of course classes sizes are limited, so do not delay your child’s registration. 

If you have questions or need additional information, please send me an email.

Warmly,
Kris Cordell
