SCI-FI FANTASY ADVENTURE
What if the artifacts in our museum came from civilizations that long ago traveled to and from other galaxies? Or what if they're secretely alive, and they play video games on the office computers at night? In this workshop, you'll use your imagination and creativity to created objects unique to our world. Whatever you can imagine can become part of a plot that captivates your family and friends.
WHODUNIT? MYSTERY WRITING WORKSHOP
During this five-day workshop, we will read some short story mystery tales, find clues, write and share your own short mystery stories. We will talk about ways that good writers are kind of like detectives, noticing little details that many people miss. For our stories, we will be using the museum galleries for writing prompts.
SHORT STORY WRITING AND ILLUSTRATION
Authors start with their own original ideas and experiences for their story’s beginning, middle and end. Using this as a framework, they creatively expand each section and develop interesting characters in descriptive settings as their plot unfolds. Inclusion of a twist or surprising turn can be a fascinating element. Participants will also have mini-lessons involving memory walks, illustration, personification, and puppetry.
Questions: email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (573) 651-2260.
