Crushing Creative Writing.webp



If your kids spend 35 minutes for three days with Dave Gustaveson, best-selling author, he promises to greatly enhance their creative writing skills, even if they struggle with English or grammar. They could become the best writers in their classes.

Mountains and Glaciers

"I have been a home school mom for fifteen years and this is by far the best writing class that my kids have ever taken. After taking Dave's class, my girls feel confident and excited to write.


This has launched them to be great writers in high school, college and the rest of their lives. Dave is amazing with kids on Zoom, and he creates a safe environment for them to grow and become incredible writers."  


Kendra Sawatsky, Homeschool Mom, August 2020

How much will it cost? 

We have a “whatever you can afford” policy from $1 and up.


The suggested fee of $17 covers my marketing costs.


If you can’t afford it, pay whatever.

If some of you can pay more to cover other kids, that would be great.


The cost is per view, not per child. 


If you gather a group, we suggest you pay more.


Anything helps us, since I am a full-time volunteer with YWAM.
