Words 'n' Whimsy

My workshops are  interactive. I like to start with some creativity exercises to get the imagination going. We then try some writing and explore the possibilities if "What if...?" We finish with a reading and a Q and A. My goal is to inspire kids to read, write, and have fun with the written word.


Melanie has worked with grades primary through grade nine.
