Summer Writing Workshop!
In this online class we explore four different fun and exciting genres. Each week we focus on one and write a unique story specializing in our chosen genre. The first week is Dystopian/ Science Fiction and before we start writing, students get to hear some brilliant writing samples from H.G. Wells, George Orwell (Animal Farm), Ray Bradbury (Fahrenheit 451), and/ or Philip K. Dick (Blade Runner). The following week we do Comedy! We read excerpts from famous comedians or comedic writers and then set out to do something daring, bold, and of course… funny!
In a more theatrical level, week 3 focuses on theater and poetry and we draw inspiration from Shakespeare and some short films to write our mini play or short film script. The final week we do Fantasy and read some selections from The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. You also have opportunity to discuss the work and learn what it means to be a dynamic storyteller. You not only learn how to improve your writing, but have a blast during the creative process.
