Story Problems: A Prose & Poetry Workshop for Young Adults
Led by Robert Schuster
Ages: 13-18, 12 students
Wednesdays: September 21 to November 30, 6:30-8pm
Have you ever wanted somewhere you could go to give and receive feedback on a short story, novel, poem, or prose you had written? Have you ever needed encouragement or advice for overcoming writer’s block or experimenting with your writing? Have you ever wished people would treat your great American novel/sci-fi epic/Harry Potter fanfiction with the interest and respect you put into it? Do you just want to know if your jokes are as funny, your metaphors as evocative, and your stream-of-consciousness as . . . stream-y as you want them to be? If the answers to these questions are yes, maybe, or any other sort of affirmative, then this workshop was made just for you! Join our Young Adult writing workshop in its second full year and take part in all the exciting conversations, readings, publications, and the occasional rant on all things epic.
