Writing is my passion and as well as majoring in English at university, along with Theatre Arts, I've almost 20 years of experience in teaching English in primary schools. Over those years, I have worked regularly with groups of children specifically on English writing skills and teaching creative writing online.
Mythology has been a hobby of mine since childhood and I have studied myths and legends over my lifetime. I've been lucky enough to be able to teach the historical context behind Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and Viking mythology during my 20+ years as an educator as well as the myths themselves. I've enjoyed guiding students through creative writing using mythical tales as inspiration. I have completed several courses on mythology, which I've thoroughly enjoyed!
A notebook or paper and something to write with, or a device to use for writing. 
Greek mythology has its share of unpleasant or slightly gory story elements. Some violence remains in the tales (eg some killing and punishments, etc). However, stories are told in an age-appropriate way and the myths covered are chosen to reflect the stated age range of the class.
