Build-A-Book (August 5 – August 9)
August 5 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$262.00
(ALL DAY: for ages 10-13) So you want to write a book, but you need a plan? Learn how to plot a book chapter by chapter, taking your great idea and turning it into a juicy plot! Observe how ordinary people and places can help you bring your book’s characters to life and become heroes and villains while on our daily walking trips to sites in the Neighborhood of the Arts. We’ll study author’s craft using your personal copy of Ralph Fletcher’s book, Live Writing, as our guide to becoming better writers. Our afternoons will be spent writing, conferencing, and sharing with one another and creating an anthology consisting of excerpts from each of your books.
