Class Description: 

A crucial building block of great stories are scenes--these are the moments when characters speak, act, and pursue their goals. Scenes drive plot, reveal character, and bring your big themes to life. But what belongs in a great scene? What doesn't? How do we escape the traps of dull dialogue and draggy descriptions so our scenes crackle from the first line to last? 

Takeaways:

In this class, we'll look at some great examples from recent young adult novels, explore the architecture of scene-writing through prompts and acting techniques, and learn to be powerful editors of our own scenes. 

**This day's program will also offer an optional 4pm information session on Tips for Applying to the 2019 Teen Summer Fellowship.** (Any teen can drop by for this half-hour info session, even if you're not attending YAWP Saturday classes.)

Who Should Register?

For high school writers age 13 - 18 ONLY. Writing notebooks will be available, but feel free to bring your own.

*If you are registering on behalf of your teen, add their email information in the “For a Friend or Child?” field on the right-hand side of the screen before you check out. This will send them a direct link and reminder to create their own profile with GrubStreet. 

(After adding the class to your cart, click "Checkout" and click “Add” next to “For a Friend or Child?” on the right-hand side to fill in their email. This is an easy way of linking the class to your child and encourages them to create their own account.)

Parents/guardians must also complete this permission form online if your teen is under 18. **Note: unlike previous forms, you only need to fill this out ONE TIME, not for every class.** If you cannot remember whether you have already filled it out, please email yawp@grubstreet.org and we can check for you!
