This isn’t your typical writer’s workshop and it’s not just for creative writing! The purpose of this 8-week session is to explore the tricks of the trade used by successful authors. What can we learn about writing by being better readers? Let’s examine all kinds of model texts to see what tools we can add to our writers’ toolboxes, and stretch beyond those five-paragraph essays. From poems to persuasion, we’ll play with putting pen to paper!
This class will develop dependent on group dynamics, but will include:
- Fun playing with language
- Creative exercises aren't just for creative writing
- Cooperative writing
- Examining great (and not so great) writers
Best for 4th-8th grades.
