Get editing and writing coaching for your book

Turn your ideas into a book.

If you have a great memory and want to brag to your friends that you wrote a book, come to me!

Or,

If you are more of a visual person, and you do not read books anymore, it can be very good to write in order to remember. According to Meltzer’s 2018 book Executive function in education: From theory to practice published with Guilford Publications, writing is a form of fighting such things as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

World Literary Nonfiction Writing Hosted by Donna Kakonge on Airbnb Experiences.

World Literary Nonfiction Writing

People interested in learning how to write letters that will get results, learn the research skills that will help you to discover information that you need that is useful for any aspect of your life, such as love letters, complaint letters, resignation letters, cover letters, resumes (both short and curriculum vitae), legal documents, medical documents, help with learning how to type faster, create e-books or paperback books, and hardcover covers for your enjoyment, or to make a bit of money, or to continue and to realize that it can be the top bestseller of all-time = I’m here to help! These letters and written material can be done with pen and paper, or, you could choose to do your written work electronically. The craft of literary nonfiction is not only about making nonfiction more enjoyable for the reader to read, but also about creating nonfiction written material that is engaging and will be read by the audience you want to read it so that results happen = whether that be getting that loan from the bank that you need, or persuading your fiancé to marry you = plus all the other areas of life in-between. Also, it includes social media and networking profile writing. People interested in writing a book and publishing it, or blogs offered in a variety of genres, have the opportunity to learn more about what creative non-fiction and literary nonfiction is about. The participants involved with the workshop can ask questions or more about writing and find out the answers to how they can improve their own writing or their manuscript to publish it traditionally or self-publish. The realities of the world of writing are also questions that will be answered, with an emphasis on the financial realities of the average writer, and also, for those seeking to be either full-time and/or part-time writers, what they can realistically earn from the craft and the art of writing. Questions around grants and awards will be answered, plus ways of branching out writing skills to not only various legitimate industries, but also into various legitimate genres such as travel writing, hospitality writing, social media profile writing, adventure writing, and writing about your home country for government and travel purposes or corporate travel purposes, plus for personal use, heritage and ancestry discovery, educational purposes, entertainment purposes, writing screenplays and for television and radio, etc. Networking is included and to gain knowledge of Canadian writers. Tips on good reads at the Toronto Public Library are included. We can meet a Faema CafféPeople interested in learning how to write letters that will get results, learn the research skills that will help you to discover information that you need that is useful for any aspect of your life, such as love letters, complaint letters, resignation letters, cover letters, resumes (both short and curriculum vitae), legal documents, medical documents, help with learning how to type faster, create e-books or paperback books, and hardcover covers for your enjoyment, or to make a bit of money, or to continue and to realize that it can be the top bestseller of all-time = I’m here to help!

Home Daycare Provider for Children – Upper Annex Area of Toronto, Ontario, Canada


ALL EXPENSES ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE

My name is Dr. Donna Kay Cindy Kakonge, BJ, MA, TESOL, LLB, EdD and 48 years old. I am offering home daycare for three school-age children in the Upper Annex area of downtown Toronto. I have a Royal Canadian Mounted Police Security clearance which is the highest level of security clearance that anyone can receive within Canadian country borders. I can present proof of it upon request to the parents/guardians. I will include photos of my home where the living room area has now been cleared a bit in order to accommodate a play area. Currently, the home is vermin-free with many parks in the area. I can offer these services seven-days a week with a maximum morning hour just to walk your child to school at your request, as well as evening hours up until 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time. If you require care for an infant or toddler, the opening hours of the home daycare are 7:00 a.m. The same for children over 3 years old and school-age children, 7:00 a.m.

Food is included, however, you must provide either lunch money and dinner money, or a packed lunch and a packed dinner. Breakfast is included.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Photo Gallery of Home Daycare

The Baldwin piano that children can use. There are also African sitting stools that young children can sit on.
The living room where children can draw, paint, use PlayDo, knit, crochet, and enjoy their computer games, plus take time for snacks and eating.
The play area has lots of light on a sunny day.
A little room for running safely :-).
The kitchen where only I am allowed unless serving plates or cups not too hot.
Another play and resting area, also with children’s books. This can also be re-arranged in the living room shown previously.
The bathroom with a brand new toilet seat that will be changed regularly.
