FUN WITH STORY WRITING

 (Ages 7-8)

 

For budding authors! We'll explore storywriting skills in a fun, creative atmosphere. Margaret uses prompts, crafts, and picture books to help young writers get started.

CREATIVE WRITING CAMPS

(Ages 8-12)

 

For young writers ready for the next step! Mornings for planning, writing, and sharing creative work will give young authors the joy of seeing their ideas turn into stories and novels. We'll use the "Story Mountain" story arc - beginning, problem, build-up, climax, and end. We'll find out what makes our protagonists and villains tick. If you'd like, share your writing in the Author Circle or peer group. Margaret will meet 1:1 with writers.
