ClassLoft After School: Write Your Stories UP!
Are you the kind of kid who fills notebooks with story after story? Maybe you have so many ideas in your head you can’t decide which one to write next. Discover how published writers decide––how they pick out what's needed to pull stories together and make a story stronger, so they can write toward the best ending. We’ll explore a bunch of writing prompts, so you get to write and share some of what you've written in class. We will also talk about how to get past the parts where you’re getting stuck. Whether you're writing fantasy or historical fiction, science fiction or realistic fiction, discover what you need to include and what you need to leave out of your stories. In this session you get to do the kind of writing you *want* to do, not the kind you *have* to do. Learn the techniques used in your favorite stories that keep readers eager to turn the page. Discover what comes next while writing UP!
