The Elements of Fiction

If you can’t wait to turn the page, the writer has succeeded in telling you a great story. What does it take to develop characters, settings, dialogue, and plot elements that have you on the edge of your seat? This workshop answers those questions and more! We’ll breakdown the parts of fiction writing each week and test out what we’ve learned with some on-the-spot writing. You’ll work with your peers, too – giving advice and feedback, while hearing what they have to say about your work. Not only does this workshop make you a better writer, but when you understand the process, it makes you appreciate your favorite writers even more. Don’t leave us on the edge of our seats-- register now for this workshop!

Parents, please be sure to pack lunch and a water bottle for your child each day!

*Please note, masks will not be required while in the classroom but are mandatory in all common areas of the building. Guardians will be required to fill out additional paperwork related to COVID-19 protocols before their student can attend class. Thank you!
