      Storywriting the LitWits Way - June

      9:00am - 12:00pm   June 17 - 21    Ages guideline: 10-16

      For years our unique sensory methods have shown kids the power and joy of reading great stories – so they’ll learn without trying, and want to read more

      This summer, we're showing kids the power and joy of writing their OWN stories, inspired by

      • sensory props from great stories:  sounds, tastes, odors, objects, and images
      • inspiring excerpts by masterful storytellers like J.R.R. Tolkien, Charlotte Bronte, Ray Bradbury, Natalie Babbitt, Ernest Hemingway, Cormac McCarthy, Edgar Allan Poe, Frances Hodgson Burnett, and many more!
      • fun activities that show why certain techniques work
      • engaging art projects that connect us to our own characters and stories 

      While having all that hands-on fun, we’ll learn

      • narrative arc components and pacing
      • powerful description techniques
      • how to effect mood and tone
      • interesting characterization methods
      • how to increase and resolve tension
      • intriguing metaphors and similes
      • how to emulate the masters
      • the power of our own voices

      And more!  

      Note:  Fee includes all supplies and materials. We'll hold this workshop if enrollment meets the minimum by June 3rd. If your own plans change, please let us know by June 3rd, and we'll gladly issue a full refund.
