Put Spring Break to work for you with a week-long class on fiction. Every day we'll focus on a different element of crafting strong, captivating, and engaging stories, including narrative, plot, character building, and the importance of scene and setting, action and description. There will be no shortage of writing prompts to kick your creative machinery into high gear, and we’ll draw inspiration from Erin Morgenstern, Salman Rushdie, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. We will give constructive feedback on each other's stories in a supportive workshop environment. By the end of the week, you’ll have the beginnings of several brand new pieces and loads of ideas for revising them. Those winter days will fly by in the frenzy of creativity they were meant for! For writers age 13-18 ONLY.
