                                        Writing Workshop for Grades 3-5
           Ahoy, mates! Turn your mutinous crew into writers with A Pirate’s Tale. Writing is smooth sailing when Author, Mary Maden is at the helm. Set sail on a rollicking, fun filled Writing Adventure in this Pirate-themed workshop. Ms. Maden, aka Captain Maden,  (In Pirate Costume) will steer your students through the uncharted––and sometimes scary waters of creative writing.

         Your students are Shanghaied by the Terror of the Seas himself––Blackbeard the pirate. Your students are now part of the literary crew aboard the famous pirate flagship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge. They have direct orders to help the legendary Blackbeard make his story, A Pirate’s Tale, a rousing success. Only problem is–-Blackbeard isn’t much of a writer!

         If Blackbeard’s new crew fails at their task, they may face the famous pirate’s wrath–– and a long walk on a short plank!   Will your students Sink or Swim?  Find out in this fun-filled workshop––
