Writing Wizards

Writing Wizards 

It’s time to let your imaginations soar and sharpen your creativity as you explore all types of writing! Writing Wizards is back in action with new classes and teachers eager to share their passion for writing with you. We range from idea hunting to script writing to science fiction. We have everything a young, budding author could want! Writing Wizards workshops are for students in grades 2-8, will meet for five consecutive Saturday afternoons.

Writing Wizards occurs each January/February. Check back in November for dates, classes, and registration!


Full tuition, minus the $8 registration fee, will be refunded only if a class is full or if Thurber House cancels a class.  Tuition is 50% refundable for cancellations received by January 17.  After January 17, no refunds will be given. 

We encourage the involvement of children with special needs and do our best to ensure that our students with mobility challenges are accommodated.  Please let us know of any special need when you register so we can prepare prior to the start of the Writing Wizards program.

Scholarships are generously provided in memory of the following Thurber House volunteers: Babette Lazarus Sirak, Norm & Ruth Spain and Janet Hammock.

We have a limited number of scholarships available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please note - Students may receive one scholarship toward one Thurber Writing program in a calendar year. Full scholarships require verification of enrollment in a free school lunch program or a letter from a school official stating financial need and the $8 non-refundable registration fee.  Partial scholarships require verification of enrollment in a reduced school lunch program or a letter from a school official stating the need for partial financial assistance, and payment of half the tuition plus the $8 non-refundable registration fee ($53 for grades 2-3, $58 for grades 4-8).  Applications and fees must be received by Friday, January 10th and scholarship recipients will be notified by Friday, January 17th.

Thank you to our generous sponsors who make this program possible!



All classes are held in the Thurber Center, 91 Jefferson Avenue (map). Interstates 670 and 71 are currently under construction as part of the Columbus Crossroads project. Traffic lanes will remain open during construction; however, speed has been reduced to 45 mph for safety. Please allow more time for travel during construction. ODOT posts traffic information, ramp closures, alternative routes and other news here to help you get to your destination safely.
