Build-a-Book | Ages: 10 – 13

July 15 @ EST 9:00 am - July 19 @ EST 4:00 pm


So you want to write a book, but you need a plan. Join our community of writers to learn how to plot a book chapter by chapter, taking your great idea and turning it into a juicy plot. We’ll access resources from a variety of arts and cultural organizations and learn how thoughtful observation of ordinary people and places will help bring your characters to life. Afternoons will be spent writing, conferencing, sharing with one another, and creating an anthology of excerpts from each of your books.
