A creative writing program exploring the art of fiction with Jennifer Wai-Lan Strodl.
Saturdays 10am-noon | Ages 10 - 15 | April - June 2014
“Writing is nothing more than a guided dream.”
― Jorge Luis Borges
Everyone has a story to tell. No matter who you are, your unique expression is important. Writing gives you the power to find your voice and put your vision into words. Fiction—where dream and reality merge—has no limits. Join us in learning the art of fiction. Together we will discuss what makes a great story, hone your writing skills, explore your experiences, wander with your wildest ideas, dream up whole worlds, bring real characters to life, and most importantly—unleash your imagination. Come and step into the dream. See where your story will take you.
