    Just sharing general suggestions. Reading Reading Reading... The more the kids read the more it’s helpful. Look for creative writing courses online. I know JHU offers such courses in summer for middle schoolers. Similarly few other colleges also offers summer creative writing courses. Check Time4Writingdotcom, Essay Structure and this one too

    Thank you so much. Even though DS reads a lot, his writing skills is not evolved for his grade level and has room for improvement. I looked at JHU and looks like the kid needs to have SAT/ACT score to enroll.
    I will definitely look at the other sites you have mentioned. Keeping fingers crossed.
