Writing For Adventure
Wednesday Afternoons: July 13-August 17 (6 sessions)
Writing can transport us anywhere; this summer, we’re off to explore new worlds and tell the tales and make the maps of everywhere we go. We challenge you to imagine, draft, and revise an epic adventure over the course of these six writing sessions: we’ll work together in small groups to write an adventure story with multiple endings (think: the multiverse!) and craft magical tales that will leave our readers spellbound! Come with us to use action, suspense, and imagery in original stories for eager audiences!
Writing For Change
Monday Evenings: July 11 – Aug 15, 2022 (6 sessions)
5:30 – 6:30pm
Writing can make a difference in the world: powerful stories can change how people think and act! Join our team in discussing what you’d like to see change in your community, your country, and your world. Together we’ll create manifestos, new monuments, and rallying cries to go beyond good ideas. We’ll use our writing to take action drawing on the power of our own voices, experiences, and passions, and on the hopes we have in our hearts and minds.
