Franklin believes that a creative mind should be nurtured. He is an advocate of encouraging people who want to explore writing stories, love to write stories or lack the confidence to write stories. In the spirit of creating a fun and enriching avenue for any person who wants to explore authorship, practice writing, or write a book, Franklin is offering a book writing workshop!
This is a way for Franklin to share his love for writing, and impact and empower people to be confident in their ability to write stories! All workshops are open to students in grade 3 through adults.. Participants in grades 3 and 4 must attend with and adult.
What is unique about the workshop? Participants will write their manuscript for their own children's book under Franklin’s instruction! The workshop is intended to be 4 hours long however, it may run a little longer or shorter than 4 hours. If the participant would like to publish the book to Amazon at the conclusion of the workshop, Franklin's publisher will assist in the process to get the book publish-ready. Additionally, participants have great potential to earn ongoing income from their published books, and students can include their published book title on their college applications! Throughout each session, Franklin will share his personal tips and strategies used when writing his books. Additionally, participants will be introduced to the basic concepts of creative writing. Every step of the way, the workshop will be loads of fun with prizes for adults and children to be won and a lot of friendly collaboration.
What is the focus of the workshop aside from building a book? In alignment with the focus of the Franklin the Helper collection of books, the workshop is intended to build self-confidence and self-motivation. Writing is an expressive form of communication that can aid in the development of social and emotional learning and awaken a creative mind. During the workshop, participants will write their books using pencil and paper, not tablets, electronic notebooks nor cell phones. The act of putting pen to paper activates areas of the brain that helps student increase their comprehension. It also involves more senses and motor neurons than when typing on a keyboard (Oxford Learning, 2015).
The cool part about the workshop is participants will learn directly from Franklin whose book, Bullies Made David Cry, debuted as the #1 new release in Children's Christian Emotions & Feelings on Amazon! Franklin has also sold over 2,000 copies of his books since they were first published a year ago. Additionally, he and his books were featured on NBC Channel 5 News! Additionally, the workshop is endorsed by the Microsoft BAM team!
