Creative Writing for Beginning Readers, with Ashlyn Anstee!

Last week, author-illustrator Ashlyn Anstee came to Pasadena Public Library to teach a workshop on creative writing for kids between the ages of 5 and 8. The workshop was super fun, punctuated by her amazing sense of humor and her creative ideas for engaging the kids!

Thanks a million for doing this workshop Ashlyn! You have such a great way with kids!

I'm a youth services librarian working in the Children's Room at the Pasadena Central Library. I purchase juvenile nonfiction books for all sites, juvenile Spanish books for all sites, and juvenile DVDs for the Central Library. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including Lucha Libros, writing workshops, and STEAM/science programs. I also do 16 weeks of Infant/Toddler Storytimes each year. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book on creative writing activities for kids.
