CREATIVE WRITING :VIRTUAL workshop w/ MRS LARSON VIRTUAL
Description

A 10 DAY WORKSHOP THAT BEGINS ON JULY 19 AND ENDS ON JULY 30

10:00 am to 11:30 am



Upper School Creative Writing Workshop: In this interactive workshop, students will flex their creative writing muscles and gain a deeper understanding of both the structure and techniques of the short story form, memoir, and poetry. Meetings will include (but are not limited to) sample readings of each genre, writerly advice, writing exercises, lessons on craft, take-home assignments, and sharing one’s writing in a friendly workshop environment. Each student will complete several pieces by the workshop’s end. Students are responsible for working on pieces in their spare time, responding to their colleagues’ pieces, and attending meetings. If you really love to write, this is a great opportunity. There’s nothing like being a part of a community of writers.
