Inequality in education contributes to making the inequalities in wealth, income, opportunity and power even greater. Writing for the Soul Workshop™ greatly reduces these inequalities in communities where local area youth access the program regardless of age, gender, ability, religion or race.
Writing for the Soul Workshop™ has not only PROVEN to be a very viable and powerful tool for our customers, but their participants also benefit in multiple ways. Our writing program differs from other “writing as therapy” type programs because participants have the opportunity to become published authors, and earn an income based on a self-created marketing strategy with expert advice. This long term financial opportunity for them creates a strong desire to continue moving forward, and to keep making positive life choices.
We understand that our customers rely on being equipped with effective curricula and “Source Funding” programs. Not just any programs either. Programs like ours that help individuals pour out emotions they otherwise have trouble expressing. Programs that help them feel more in control of their lives. Writing for the Soul Workshop™ does all that and so much more. Our curriculum helps them to learn, and become better readers. Better readers do better in life.
Our workshop addresses not just educational outcomes, but emotional and physical needs as well. Here are some of the WOW factors experienced by participants in Writing for the Soul Workshop™:
*Experience writing as therapy
*Access to counseling
*Nutritious meals and snacks
*Lasting, positive friends and mentors creating an ongoing network of support
*Increased proficiency in both reading and writing
*Participants become published Authors and can promote that skill on every future resume and job application
*Participants earn royalties based on individual book sales. That’s correct, Writing for the Soul Workshop™ offers earning opportunities for any participant that wishes to join our Affiliates Program. Unlike the Read 180 Program, this is a major WOW factor!
We’ve been delighted with what others have had to say about our writing program! Here’s a few testimonials:
“I loved the workshop because I got to write what I wanted. I am glad that I can write that I am an author on my resume for a job. I had fun when we to Vintage Stock to sign books. I also liked it when I sold all the books that I did.” — Moriah Cormican, Student
“I’ve been attending the workshop every Monday. I really like it! It helps me get stuff out on paper and not keep it inside.” — Tadrien Hill, Student
“…Eric is currently conducting one of his workshops in-house with our students. I have been completely blown away by the response that our students have given Eric and this program. I have kids in class who struggle to write a sentence for me, write an entire page in a few minutes for Eric! Kids who have declared loud and clear to me, “I don’t write. I don’t like to write. I can’t write. You can’t make me write” who end up writing; and write from their gut. Some of the responses from my kids:
* “I love this workshop. I have never wanted to write before. Now I do.”
* “I can’t believe that I am going to be a published author!”
* “I want to write a book now!”
This workshop is truly amazing and will touch whoever chooses to embrace it and dig deep into themselves.” –Sarah Lankford, Special Education Teacher, State of Missouri
“This is an opportunity to connect with our students outside of the parameters of school and promote literacy. The workshop gives them a platform from which to speak to the world. It also gives the facilitators a chance to demonstrate love and acceptance.” — Naomi Austin, Educator in Missouri
