Peachtree City, Georgia: Kids from all over the metro-Atlanta area gathered at the offices of Gallopade International to learn how good writing is a lifetime essential skill. The writing workshop was titled, “Do You Think I Could Write for Disney One Day, Mrs. Marsh?” For an hour and half the kids learned how to improve their writing skills and explore the wonder of turning what is in their head and their heart into words on a printed page. They focused on educational and career paths that would benefit from a talent and love of writing, including programs at colleges such as the Savannah College of Art and Design and companies like Disney.

“These kids are learning to use the written word to share, to achieve goals, to entertain, to educate, to amuse… and to change the world,” said Carole Marsh, workshop leader and founder and CEO of Gallopade International. “They are some of our community’s best and brightest young talent and they are ready to engage the world!”

Gallopade International is an award-winning leader in the production of children’s books, curriculum programs, supplementary education materials. Carole Marsh is the author of many award winning fiction and non-fiction children’s books and was named Georgia Author of the Year for Middle Readers in 2007.
