What you'll learn in this kids writing class:

Fiction is both an escape from reality and way back to ourselves. Words can transport us to other worlds, other times, and other lives while still speaking to those basic human desires - safety, belonging, acceptance. To carve this way out and in, a writer must be skilled, take risks, and be perceptive. 

Students in this workshop will learn and use the basic elements of fiction to write their own stories whether adventure, fantasy, mystery, or realistic. Through writing exercises and learning to constructively critique each other's work within a supportive environment, young writers will develop an idea into a believable yet surprising story.
