Class Description:

Get writing! Whether you’re working on your first novel or writing short stories, poetry, plays, or even fanfiction, this is an opportunity to improve your skills and learn about new techniques. Each day will be filled with writing and reading exercises designed to get you thinking and creating. How do you engage all of the senses in your writing, so that your readers smell and taste your scenes? Can you sit down and have a conversation with your characters? How can you twist and tease the English language so that all of its sounds become your tools? We will touch on all of this and more during our week of creative writing! We will work in pairs, groups, and individually to dissect work from your favorite writings and workshop our own. By the end of the class, each writer will have built a few pages of ideas, outlines, prompts, and writing tips. This course is geared towards creative, energetic, and open-minded writers all of levels. For writers age 13-18 ONLY.

Parents/guardians must also complete this permission form online before the start of the class.
