WORKSHOP 2: DEVELOPING CHARACTERS
Young creative writers enjoy themselves and prepare themselves to be better readers and writers later in life in this 4-week series of creative writing workshops for teens. We'll 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. Paper and pens will be provided, though writers may also bring laptops. The workshops work as a progression or as individual one-off classes.
DATE: SAT 9 DEC
COST: €10 PER WORKSHOP
INSTRUCTOR: MAX SHERIDAN
*Exceptions may be made for younger creative writers with some experience. For writers 17+, check out Story Craft, the adult version of this course.
