Have you always wanted to write stories for kids, but never knew where to start? This class will let you get your feet wet in this fun genre. In-class prompts—everything from starter sentences to images, magical objects to inanimate objects—will help you generate new work week after week. Then, you’ll give and receive positive feedback in a low-pressure atmosphere (sharing is always optional). You’ll also receive optional take-home exercises to keep your fingers flying during the week. By the end of this workshop, you will have started multiple stories you can build on. Whether you want to write for publication, your grandkids, or yourself, this is the place to begin. This class is geared towards writing for ages 8–12.
This class takes place online via Zoom.
