Story Craft Junior
Creative writing for teens and young adults
STORY CRAFT JUNIOR
Learning how stories work makes teens better readers, communicators and empathizers. Plus, it’s just a lot of fun. In this 8-week creative writing course teens ages 12-16 will learn how to put together plots, build compelling characters and write engaging descriptions as we explore our literary voices across a number of genres. We’ll cover in collaborative and solo projects: short stories, flash fiction, creative non-fiction, live storytelling, and blog and magazine writing. Classes meet once a week for 1.5 hours and are limited to 8 spots.
