Are you an aspiring young writer? Would you like to become one? Join us for the Young Writer’s Workshop and release your creative side. We will put away our inner editors, explore our creativity and discover the writer in us all.

Children going into grades 3-5 can join us for this series of four workshops Monday July 7, July 14, July 21 and July 28 from 1:30-3:00 p.m.

“But Miss Chris” you say “it is summer…I don’t want to do anything  like school work…”

Well I know it says Writers’ Workshop but perhaps we really should change the name because it’s a lot more fun than it is work. Cloud watching, mystery writers CSI, writer’s charades and writing and performing a short plays are just a few of the things we’ve “worked” on.

Here’s a fun example of one of our warm up games you can try yourself.

“What if….”

Where do writers come up with such wonderful ideas?  What made them think up the story in the first place?  There are as many different ways of writing and getting ideas for writing as there are writers.  One of my favorites is just to think “What if…”

What if a boy found out on his birthday that he was a wizard?

What if there was a magical land where animals could talk?

What if you woke up one day and found that you were invisible?

All these ideas might have sounded silly when the authors first thought of them but they became some of the most memorable stories of all time.  Take some time and write your own list of “what ifs”. The sillier they are the better.  You’ll be on your way to your own amazing story in no time.

So come join us and see how much fun creative writing is in the Writers’ Workshop.  Bring your list of “what ifs” if you like.

Hope to see you there.

– Miss Chris
