Welcome, young writers, incoming grades 6-7! Join us for an exciting time of writing, talking, reading—and more writing!

In this workshop students will turn their notebooks to a new page. They will locate the stories they carry, take risks in writing, learn to turn memory into fiction, fiction into poetry. They will write to a wide variety of prompts while honing skills through craft lessons that build both language dexterity and knowledge of genres.
