My Ivy Education, Davidson Alum Krystle DiCristofalo Offering Creative Writing Classes This July

This summer, My Ivy Education is offering several of our most successful, in-demand writing classes taught by Davidson Alum Krystle DiCristofalo, the nation’s leader in helping students become nationally and internationally award-winning writers. Sign-ups are open for our beloved courses “Creative Writing: Beyond 101,” starting July 10, and Session 2 of “How to Write Successful Essays at the Stanford Online High School (and Other Private Schools),” starting July 11 by popular demand after Session 1 sold out. Students will come out of every course with a portfolio of work that they can submit to writing competitions, use to deepen their understanding of the writing process, and publish in Metamorphosis Literary Journal, the My Ivy Education anthology of student work.
