Young Writer's Workshop (Gr. 8-12)
Celebrate the kickoff of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) with this young writer's workshop. We'll begin by reading and critiquing 2-3 pieces of published poetry and prose. Then we'll spend one hour responding to timed writing challenges with different themes and prompts. (Not a fan of a particular theme or prompt? Nothing to worry about! Make up your own or ask for an alternative.) At the end of the workshop there will be time for participants to share their work with the group and receive constructive feedback. (You are also welcome to share your work without receiving feedback if you would prefer.)
Please bring a notebook and pen or pencil to write your pieces. Registration required - call the Youth Services department at 732-390-6789 to register.
