I've met a fantastic group of people and become a much better writer. Kate and the rest of the staff are hardworking and fun to work with.

My daughter takes her writing seriously because Uptown Stories takes her seriously.

Kimberly

Parent

Uptown Stories has helped my writing in the sense that it allowed me to realize that this is my passion and that I want to pursue it as a career. It opened my eyes to the possibilities that creative writing has to offer. I think that anyone can get something out of attending Uptown Stories.

Graydon

Alumnus

Thanks to [Uptown Stories], a passing interest has become a passion.

Gerry

Parent

The quality of teaching is superb. The teachers have the chance to get to know each child, and due to the small class size, the feedback is very specific. Also, witnessing the other children critique the writing is remarkable - the children are kind and respectful, but very honest.

Lori

Parent

I would not be the writer I am today without Uptown Stories.

Elias

Alumnus

Writing used to be something that was just work; something we have to do at school. However, now it's a way for me to express different things, and it's much more enjoyable now that there is a place where everyone has the same passion for writing that I do.
