Storytelling will enhance any path your students choose to take in life. The ability to comprehend and reflect one's understanding of the world in a compelling and captivating manner allows for more meaningful connections with others, and a healthy perspective on the heroic role they must play in this world.

"The fact that students, through Written Out Loud, become published authors and begin to see themselves as experts, creators, storytellers - there is nothing better. To have that joy is something that is just irreplaceable."

"As soon as I realized that Written Out Loud was for real, I signed up our entire summer school for the program, grades 2 through 8... I cannot speak highly enough of this program and what it has brought to our students. The results were astounding."

"Opening our Hero’s Journey themed camp program this summer was perhaps one of the greatest gifts we could ever have provided our summer learners. Our children unlocked boundless treasures of imagination, connection and confidence. Our summer storytellers have enjoyed an experience that will stay with them for a long time to come."
