Our Summer 2018 Teen Creative Writing Classes at Writing Workshops Dallas are starting in June! We'd love to have your teen join us!
Our belief is that anyone, no matter their age, has the ability to write a compelling story and deepen their understanding of the craft of writing. During our intensive one-week summer courses designed exclusively for teen writers, we focus on creating artful writing so that each student can leave the course with a greater understanding of how stories are made, from imagination, to writing, to revision. We want our teen writers to learn how to prize the sentence and the story, and so we also focus on generating new work each day over the course of the week. It is a fast-paced, exciting five days led by Amber Royer, whose debut novel Free Chocolate has been named one of Barnes & Noble's 25 Debuts to Watch for in 2018! Amber spent five years as a youth librarian where she organized teen writers' groups and teen writing contests, and also had the privilege of writing part of the original classroom-use materials for NaNoWriMo's Young Writer's Program. With two different sessions to choose from, we hope you'll join us for one of these week-long writing adventures!
