The College Essay—a workshop for grades 11-12—8 Mondays, Oct 7-Nov 25, 5-7 pm.
The college application essay is all about telling your story. But how you tell that story is critical. Whether you traveled to Mongolia or never left the state, did Habitat for Humanity or cleaned your room, ate a cricket or an Oreo, that story, however exotic or mundane, is unique. During this workshop we will explore what it means to take risks on the page, and to write with economy, skill, and authenticity.
Prose World—a workshop for grades 7-8—8 Wednesdays, Oct 9-Nov 27, 5-7 pm.
If you're an observer, have an eye for detail, a voice, an opinion, or a style that is all yours, Prose World is the planet for you. You'll experiment with different forms, from flash fiction and fantasy to screenwriting and journalism. Along the way, you'll learn what makes a good story, from plot and voice to point of view, scene, and dialogue. Click here for a detailed description of the class.
