Our Goal

Creative Writing Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity that sponsors cancer patients in writing therapy courses, but out scope goes beyond that. We rescue storm tossed lives and escort persistent students from their present level to their highest individual potential.

CWI has a three-pronged approach:

  • We present professional material in a practical and simple method
  • Private tutors escort students through the maze of unwritten rules and procedures of writing
  • At the end of the course, we evaluate students and recommend the next best choice on their ladder of learning

Our students range from ages 14 to 80+. We especially like to reach the middle-aged and older folks who dare to reach for their star. Some of the comments we hear most are, “I’m too old to learn,” or “I can’t remember things like I used to.” We inspire students with personal interaction and cheerleading.

Some students like to hobby write. Others write to leave a legacy, and still others dream of writing for a living. All of those reasons are valid.

Private tutors mold the lessons to meet their students' need, thereby setting attainable goals for one and all.

The truth of the matter is, writing is hard, but students who apply themselves will learn new skills they will use the rest of their lives. We love our job!
