Creative Writing Workshop
Tuesday, November 17th, 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Let's celebrate National Novel Writing Month! Students become authors as they learn the skills they need to write their own short stories in this 90-minute creative writing workshop with Eliza Srestha. From setting the scene to creating characters, planning the plot to using multi-sensory description, the teen authors will read sample stories, practice distinct writing skills, and workshop each other’s pieces. By the end of the class, they will have completed several short exercises and have written the beginning of a short story. This class is for middle and high school students of all skill levels.
