Your Stories Matter: Exploring Creative Nonfiction

Instructor(s): Sejal Shah

Course Code: JY16-N11
“A creative-writing class may be one of the last places you can go where your life still matters.” I believe in these words by Richard Hugo. This will be a week to write about your life and your unique perspective on the world. What are the stories that matter to you—the real-life experiences you want to write about? Your first job, your first love, a summer visit to your favorite cousins, your grandparents’ stories, your best day ever, the stories of your neighborhood, the mean girls in your grade, a book or travel experience that changed your life—it’s all fodder for writing. This will be a pressure-free, creativity-stretching workshop for teen writers. And who knows, by the end of the week, maybe you’ll even end up writing something that could become your college admissions essay!
