Independent Writing or Self-Publishing Project
Overview
We have had the pleasure of working with a number of dedicated young authors on their independent writing projects and even supporting some to self-publish their books with Green Elephant Books. These writers work one-on-one with an ECP teacher who serves as their first reader and editor to guide them through the process of revising and editing their manuscripts. While the focus may be on refining and completing a particular project, the primary objective is to support aspiring authors to develop the skills, perspective and mindset for a lifelong writing journey.
Learning objectives
  • Develop grit and perseverance by working on a challenging and long-term writing project
  • Develop writing skills and techniques to apply to this piece and future writing
