a blog about creative writing for kids.


Teachers who work with kids and words.

Kids who love to swim around in their imaginations.

Teens who like the idea of becoming authors.

Students who take our classes and their parents who can't wait to read their young writer's latest work.

"Take My Word For It!" is a word incubator--we provide a safe andsupportive environment where young writers can explore their writer's voice.Our fabulously talented and enthusiastic team of instructors work with students throughout the San Francisco Bay area.

"Take My Word For It" was founded in 2005 as an after school creative writing program for kids, in elementary school through high school. Sondra Hall, who has been in love with the written word since she was 8 years old, is the organization's founder and director.
