Young Writers (ages 9-11) Workshop
In this afternoon workshop for writers ages 9-11, we’ll explore creative writing and expression. We’ll get started with creative exercises, prompts, and readings, and have ample time to share our work. You can explore multiple genres: share poems you like and write short poems together; bring your imagination and characters to life by writing short and very short stories; write what you think about yourself, where you came from, and the world around you by writing nonfiction, memoir, and newspaper-type stories. Plus, we’ll have a visit or two from our comic book writing teacher to work with visual stories… and a visit from our songwriting teacher to learn the art of songwriting. This is a great chance for you to have fun with your words. Come express yourself in a guided, friendly, and supportive environment.
Instructors: Kindra McDonald, Kristin Mehaffey, Dana Staves, & Skye Zentz
