Baltimore Based Author Helps Children Learn the Fundamental Skills in Writing and Reading

Baltimore, MD.  According to the New York Times, focusing on the fundamentals of grammar is one approach to teaching writing (2017).  Leslie Crawford is a literary expert from Baltimore, MD who is changing this narrative.  Many educators are concerned less with sentence-level mechanics than with helping students draw inspiration from their own lives/ literature, according to the New York Times.  Leslie is a literary expert whose writing skills involve her self-published books, publishing company for other authors, and her online literacy bookstore.  Leslie is now adding another literary component to her business called When Children Write.  This writing program offers children a way to expand on their creativity through writing.  “Writing fuels the soul,” states Leslie Crawford.  

Greetings, I’m Leslie Crawford, A.K.A, The Literacy Fixer.
I’m a mom, speaker, publisher, author, teacher, coach, and the creator of When Children Write. I guide children through the process of using their imagination to write and publish AMAZING books.

The program’s mission is to provide a reading and writing program to guide students to writing their own book while also improving the ongoing literacy crisis.  When Children Write operates on four principles:  

  • Build Confidence Among Students;
  • Have Fun;
  • Respect Each Other; and
  • Be Creative

Leslie successfully runs this program as an after school program at many public school locations.  This year she is also hosting a Virtual Summer Camp for six weeks.  She also offers one on one sessions as consultations and tutoring options.  Leslie is hoping to end the achievement gap by helping kids improve on their reading and writing skills.  She is actively seeking partnerships with more schools and programs.  In addition to this program, Leslie also owns her own self-publishing firm called Exposed Books.  To connect with Leslie Crawford’s “When Children Write” program please visit or email her at [email protected]
