Expand your mind
Writing is good for the brain! It helps strengthen critical thinking, creativity, memory, and even happiness.

Everyone has a story, or a hundred stories. Writing helps you transform your ideas into stories to share with the world.

ABOUT ME, Claire Brislin
I believe that learning should be a JOYFUL experience. I have a passion for reading and writing and I believe that both help us discover our true selves and become better critical thinkers, empathetic listeners, and compassionate doers.
I have been an educator since 2007, working with high school and middle school students in English, creative writing, and humanities across the globe, most recently at Cascades Academy and REALMS Middle School in Bend, OR . Along the way I received an MA in Literature and an MFA in Writing for Children. I am currently writing books for children but my passion for education has ignited a desire to create a stress-free and grade-free environment for learning where students can be themselves and follow their own instincts in the literary arts.
Come join me and rediscover the JOY of learning.
