Bloomington, IL, March 17, 2021 --(PR.com
)-- Burning Soul Press today announced the launch of a new program, IGNITE, providing guidance for youth in grades seven through twelve to foster and connect with their creative writing skills, and includes an opportunity to become a published author. The first session begins April 15, 2021.
IGNITE is a four-month program that targets observation, esteem, and self-actualization within teens, guiding them to write a prompted story that will allow them to identify their emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical strengths and special traits. The story they write will encourage participants to positively showcase their own unique characteristics while also learning to celebrate and respect what makes other people unique.
Multiple studies show the benefits of involvement in the arts (creative writing included) for overall academic success. IGNITE comes at a time when many students are receiving education at home, through virtual public school or homeschooling, which has been on the rise due to COVID-19. IGNITE is a unique and targeted online program for parents and sponsors wishing to provide additional educational opportunities for their pre-teens and teens.
IGNITE participants will be provided one module per week which includes one to two videos to watch and writing assignments to put learnings to practice, that can be completed on the students’ and families’ own time. Each week, Burning Soul Press will host one live group session with the Burning Soul Press IGNITE instructor, including a live Q&A session and story sharing time.
“Our teens are now facing the advantages and disadvantages of this new world, that even adults are getting lost trying to navigate,” said Lauren Eckhardt, CEO and founder of Burning Soul Press. “Our goal with IGNITE is to help teens break out of this digital conformity and regain use of their imagination. We want to encourage young minds to create their own unique identity through the power of creative writing and gain the self confidence, originality, and independence desperately needed at this time.”
When parents or sponsors pay in full for an IGNITE seat, another seat is donated to a teenager who may not otherwise be able to join the program. With these donated IGNITE seats, Burning Soul Press offers the IGNITE program to a new organization, low income school, or orphanage every three months.
The IGNITE program includes the opportunity for the teen to become a published author with their story in a compilation book created by Burning Soul Press, an affirmation of their skills and hard work. The book will be available for sale online through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other retail sites. Parents and sponsors can also pursue publishing through Burning Soul Press for their teen’s book.
