RoL offers Elementary School and Middle School Writing Camps where we'll play with structure, plot, character, genre, and theme.


Every kid already has incredible style, we'll just nurture it.


Come make books with us!! 

For Teens:

A bi-monthly poetry workshop for teens. Learn how to decipher direct and implied meaning within a poem while also learning how to construct verbally rich poetry worthy of sharing aloud. After this workshop, participants will leave with a few pieces that are worth of publication.  Quality over quantity is very much our modus operandi when crafting poetry. Good poetry writing is HARD, so come experience the writing process with us together! Click here for more information. 

This bi-monthly writing group will encourage you to find your own voice, and overcome obstacles like fear and insecurity. You'll have the freedom to write what you want, while learning what makes a strong plot, fleshed out characters, and an engaging voice, all while crafting your own personal style. Click here for more information


The tarot, before it acquired prophetic powers, was just a game, each card represented a person, and that person represented an archetype. A story emerges from this cast of characters. The trick is, no matter what three cards are pulled, there you are. This class will help you understand the delicate balance of this world of personalities, and have you rolling in story ideas. Bonus: you will also get a crash course on the tarot. Click here for more information
