Creative Writing for Teens

  • Sundays, 3-5 p.m., begins Sept. 18
  • Linda Legters
  • Seven weeks, $295

Note: This workshop is for teenaged participants.

Take your ideas from imagination to the page by sharing your passion with fellow writing enthusiasts. Learn how professional authors make their stories so compelling. Write and share your own short stories, novel chapters, novel outlines, fantasy fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction or whatever inspires and drives you. Use autobiographical material or create an original world that propels dynamic characters through conflicts, quests or adventures. This workshop will provide pressure-free opportunities to develop and share work-in-progress, new work and ideas that are on the horizon.
