Online Writing Courses

Many of us homeschoolers struggle with the subject of writing. It's a difficult subject to teach and to grade, especially in the upper grades.

In response to that need, we are in the midst of creating an entire program around the subject of writing. We think of it as Writing Connections. We're connecting you with the best instructors and resources. We're connecting you with grading and commentary on your student's writing to help you be a success in your homeschool.

Here are the courses that are still opened for registration this semester, as well as courses scheduled for the Summer and the Fall semesters. We will be adding the Spring 2013 semester in the upcoming days.
