Family of Writers with Lorrie Tom.png
It’s time to gather your family around tables for more than food. It’s time to nourish yourselves with words, stories, and all things writing. You’ll arrive tired, but leave inspired.
— Lorrie Tom

Family of Writers is an evening writing class created and taught by me, Lorrie Tom, in elementary and middle schools since 1989.  My motto: Arrive tired. Leave inspired.

  • I guide students and parents through powerful writing invitations.

  • Everyone experiences writing as a creative, joyous, and insightful journey.

  • The last class is an anthology publication party.

  • If you dream of children who love writing, there is nothing more powerful than sitting beside your beloved babies, putting pen to paper, and sharing stories.

  • Plus, I show writers what they're doing WELL.

  • I show you how to give writing response to your kids. No negative feedback. No grades. Just all around writing joy!

  • Welcome to the Family.
