Event Description

 Pen to Paper is a workshop which is a hybrid course combining all different types and mediums of writing. In the past the course has incorporated fiction writing, personal stories, play writing, and poetry. The course focuses on building character, plot, and setting using prompts and exercise as well as taught instruction. Children and teens are encouraged to peruse their own personal favorite medium and pursue a longer piece. This course is flexible and can be changed based on the interest of the children.The workshops meet weekly and the cost is $25.00 per tow hour session. All participants receive a free notebook.
