Homebound: Welcome home!
We know many of you are "suddenly-at-home schoolers" and most of you are "already homeschoolers."
During this time of confinement due to COVID-19, all of us may feel a little uneasy, at loose ends, and antsy. Brave Writer has lots of resources to help you.
We've made some of our paid resources free until April 30, 2020 so that you can enjoy them without spending a dime.
Also, take a look at our online classes listed below if you are looking for short-term, powerful writing instruction while your kids are home from traditional school or are being homeschooled. Our classes are 3-6 weeks in length and new ones start every Monday.
