ANI's Pen & Paper Clubs are a safe haven for dreamers. We encourage your young writer's active imagination and strengthen the skills he or she is learning in English class. Students will be exposed to a variety of genres, including both prose and poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction, and they'll learn a lot about research.
Fall P&P begins the week of September 3rd and continues through the semester until December 20th.
Spring P&P begins the week of January 7, 2014 and continues through the semester until the last week of school, May 27-30.
Classes meet from September-December and January - May once per week (3-4 times per month) for 1.5 - 2 hours at your child's school. Classes for elementary and high school students meet after school, and classes for middle school students meet before school.
We have exceptional teachers and staff and we want to keep them that way! Our teachers are cherry-picked from the best Education program in TN and are working towards their Master's in Education or English. We cost less than dance, karate, art lessons, and most extra-curricular activities, we expect demand to be high. The price includes a copy of The Collected Papers, which will include work from your child, and a lifetime of writing support from our staff. Once you're a wordy bird, you're always a wordy bird! Your student can contact us at anytime to talk about writing, life, or their favorite book character! Our teachers form spectacularly strong relationships with our club members and make themselves available via text, email, and phone to all of our students and parents. If you'd prefer to pay by check, please contact Kristen at email@example.com for details on how to register.
IMPORTANT NOTE: NO STUDENT IS EVER TURNED AWAY FROM OUR CLUB FOR FINANCIAL REASONS. WE WORK WITH ANY BUDGET AND HAVE MANY SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE! Give Kristen a ring and we'll get that pencil spinning!
Don't fret! If you're school is not on the above list, sign up for our Saturday session. It is open to all public, private, or homeschool wordy birds! All Saturday classes are held at Harding Academy from 10:30am-noon at 170 Windsor Drive, Nashville, TN.
