Creative Writing Workshop

November 14, 2014

The first CGA Creative Writing Workshop was a great success!  The 3rd, 4th and 5th graders who attended learned from our authors about story structure, character development, and how to plan and write a story that grabs the reader’s attention.  They also spent time learning about poetry and how to express themselves with poetry.  The participants had a great time, and were engaged in exploring writing.


Coppell Gifted Association would like to thank the authors who lead this workshop:

Kimberly J. Smith (Middle Grade Author)

Ellie James (Young Adult Author)

Jennifer Cole Judd (Picture Book Author and Children’s Poet)

They all did a great job, and we appreciate the gift of their time and knowledge!


Watch for more information on upcoming student event activities from CGA.   If you have ideas or suggestions for student events, please contact our student events coordinator at


Note:  toward the end of the workshop, Kim Smith recommended the book  Writing Magic by Gail Carson Levine was for those interested in writing.
