Attention Aspiring Novelists, Writers, and Bookworms alike! We are looking for young writers who are passionate about developing their craft as a writer and learning new ways to improve their storytelling. In this advanced class, all participants will improve upon their fundamental knowledge of creative writing and explore topics such as world building, character development, storytelling through comics and graphic novels, and an introduction to non-fiction and memoirs. All participants will work towards writing, editing, revising, and publishing their own short story in an anthology over the program's entirety. All writers must be actively interested in continuing their writing projects outside of the seminar and come prepared to each session.
