The Child Writing Project

About the Child Writing Project

Each year, The Columbus Children’s Theatre selects a theme and collects stories written by students grades K-6. Over 1,000 submissions are received and the top 15-20 stories are compiled to create a hysterical, fast-paced entertaining sketch comedy show seen by thousands and thousands of children each year. A fantastic addition to any creative writing curriculum, The Child Writing Project promotes creativity and empowerment to young authors from all over Ohio.
