Story Craft Junior

Creative writing for teens and young adults

 

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 meet once a week on Saturday for 2 hours and are limited to 8 spots. Instruction is in English.
