Read. Write. Edit. Every Day.

The only way to increase reading and written fluency is to read and write every day.

We aim to answer the following 3 questions:

  1. What should my child be reading on a daily basis?

  2. What should my child be writing on a daily basis?

  3. How will my child be receiving feedback on their written work?

Hear What Our Students Have to Say!

The Journal is unlike any other program I've done before because it gives me the unique opportunity to not only receive daily feedback, but also see my works published ... I'm glad I found this program, and I highly recommend it!

I recently won 5 Scholastic writing awards in the Midwest region from the creative writing pieces that I did during the summer journal writing sessions (2 gold keys, 1 silver, 2 honorable mentions)!

The Journal definitely set me on the path to fixing my study habits. Though I still find myself submitting near midnight, I haven't missed as many assignments as before. I would 100% recommend Letterly to people who want to both fix their study habits and improve their writing.

Reading and writing used to be something Kevin hated the most. After participating in The Journal, Kevin has gained so much confidence and grown to love writing. He said, ‘I’m not afraid of writing anymore!’ He asked to do The Journal again this summer. 

I really enjoyed the camp! The deadlines really helped with my laziness and gave me a sense of urgency...The articles are well-balanced and I love how we have different topics and articles to choose from. This camp helped me a lot with my vocabulary, flow and structures in writing.

I loved my time at The Journal! Even though the pacing is very rigorous, I enjoyed sitting down everyday to write! Thank you, Letterly, for helping me improve my writing skills in a fun and engaging way!

 The Journal makes you love reading and writing. Also, you get to learn new stuff and research. The Journal made me feel more comfortable with writing and reading.

I cannot believe it, but my phenomenal four weeks here as a staff writer for The Journal have elapsed within the blink of an eye. I still look back on my previous essays and see that I have made vast improvement... This camp has started a new, unforgettable chapter in my life. I have faith that the articles I have written will take me far.
