Creative Writing Workshop
For students in 6th through 12th grade
Saturday, 2pm-3:30pm, October 30
Taught by Gwynne Watkins

Do you love to write? Do you keep a novel-in-progress on your laptop? A journal full of poems next to your bed? Or maybe you've never written anything, but you love telling stories and thinking about other versions of reality. This workshop is about helping tweens and teenagers to write down their thoughts and create first drafts. Participants may bring work in progress or begin new projects in the room. We'll start our day with a fun writing exercise, then we'll all write independently in the space for about 30 minutes. Finally, we'll read a little bit of our writing out loud to one another, using Liz Lerman's Critical Response Process to create a safe, positive space where we can encourage one another to keep going. Writers of all genres and experience levels are encouraged to attend!

$30 for regular registration, $20 for current TCD class enrollees.
