If you’re a teen who loves reading and writing about magic, science fiction, and fantasy, then this is the class for you! Join us for a week of writing exercises, short readings, and games as we dive into the fantastical. What makes a reader feel like they are there, in your made up world? What can you pull from life that will add to your story? We’ll talk craft aspects such as world building, exaggerated characters, dialogue, and more as we work on short scenes, building toward the first draft of a short story. Writing notebooks will be available, but feel free to bring your own. Also feel free to bring in examples your favorite sci-fi, fantasy, or magical story! For writers age 13-18 ONLY.
