STORY CRAFT JUNIOR
Learning how stories work makes teens better readers, writers, communicators and empathizers. Plus, it’s just a lot of fun. In this 4-week creative writing workshop teens ages 12-16 will learn how to put together plots, build compelling characters and write engaging descriptions as we explore our literary voices in a number of different styles. We’ll cover in group and solo projects: short stories, flash fiction, creative non-fiction and blog writing. Classes will meet once a week for 1.5 hours and are limited to 8 spots. Instruction is in English.
Story Craft Junior will be running for 4 weeks in December 2017 at the Nicosia Pop Up Festival. The course may be taken as a progression or as individual one-off classes. For more information, please visit the event page.
