ClassTelling Story (Ages 12-14)
Join us this summer for "Telling Story." This four week writing class will focus on how to create great narratives by exploring different aspects of story and storytelling. We'll focus on character development, and how to think up compelling characters. We'll also look at story arcs—students will brainstorm narratives as we learn different concepts of story. Finally we'll discuss the “Why” of storytelling. Why am I writing THIS story? What am I trying to say?
