A little about me

Hello! My name is Katina Kavadas, and I’m the author of over 15 books for young readers that have been translated into over twenty languages around the world– some of my favorites are the ELLIE, ENGINEER series, the PIP BARTLETT series, the DOUBLECROSS series, and the SISTERS RED series.In addition to writing full-time, I have taught creative writing classes, camps, and seminars for kids for over ten years. My approach is to teach creative writing as play— something that is to be enjoyed, experimented with, and shared. Too often I find that students are their own worst critics; I aim to remind them that there’s value and fun to be had in everything you write, whether it’s good, bad, or in-between.

My classes are fun, informative, and engaging, and I genuinely love helping students uncover or hone their writing talents. Students are encouraged to speak and ask questions during class, and I do my best to relate the material to their likes, dislikes, and interests so they connect better with the coursework.

Please know that I am adding class sections as quickly as possible and that Outschool does not show full sections to parents. I take into account schedule requests when creating new sections, though I can’t always respond to schedule requests personally! There is unfortunately not a “waitlist” on Outschool (teachers are begging for this functionality!), so the best thing to do is like/follow both me and the class you’re interested in, so you get an email when a new section opens up.
