Program Description

About this event:

Every character is on a quest. As a writer, you're on a quest to create an adventure the likes of which your readers have never seen. In this fun, exciting workshop, we'll learn how to build an epic quest, full of challenges, crises, and characters who emerge stronger than they were when their journey began. Writing prompts will be easy and engaging, a way to create your own magic on the page. Whether you have a story you're already working on or have never written anything other than homework in your life, you are welcome to join us on the quest!

For ages 9-13, this program will be held in person in our Thaler/Howell programming room. Registration is required.
