Young Adult Writers Program (YAWP): Writing on the Edge of our Seats
We all know what it feels like to be hooked by a book, that rush of not knowing, the pull that has us turning pages, frantic to know what happens next. How do writers do that to us? More importantly: How can we learn to have this effect on our readers?
In this fun, 3 ½ -hour session, we’ll explore the secret ingredients that go into crafting tales that keep us on the edge of our seats, testing out a few tried-and-true methods to make your stories ones that readers won’t want to put down.
Great for those interested in writing mysteries, thrillers, suspense, horror, or any other fiction with a strong pulse! Writing notebooks will be available, but feel free to bring your own. For writers age 13 - 18 ONLY.
