Hello, we are Andrew and Jennifer Yoder. We have developed a creative writing curriculum to meet a need in our Christian schools and homes. We currently live in western Ohio, near Lima. Andrew teaches school and has sideline hobbies like growing blueberry plants, raising Cavapoo puppies, and working on his fixer upper property. Jennifer is a stay-at-home mom of two children and has interests in gardening, afternoon tea times, and of course, writing. Together we want to glorify God in every area of our lives, but also hope to make your creative writing teaching a little bit easier. We continue to develop our curriculum so please contact us with any question or suggestion. We would love to hear from you.

What people are saying:
"Teaching with your books was like giving their creativity permission to expand, their thoughts room to explore, and their articulation skills room to grow. I loved watching students go from a dread of writing to loving creative writing class, and them finding out "Oh I can actually write something worthwhile."
This curriculum is one of the best I've added to my classroom!

Creative Writing Teacher
"Creative, engaging, thoughtful writing ideas give children a good start to the conundrum of "what do I write about?" Variation in lessons holds interest as children imagine, think through ordinary happenings, or place themselves in other time periods or cultural experiences to write."
~ Wendy Weaver
As teachers we have seen that the field of arts is limited in resources. It can be draining for teachers to constantly be coming up with the next writing idea, art lesson, or music project. Often what happens then is that it gets neglected or simplified to the extent that students are not inspired to pursue it. There are teachers out there who have succesfully produced materials for these needs. Part of our goal with Creative Word Studio is to make quality resources available to you for your writing, art, and music classes.
