Building Fantastical Worlds | Ages: 8-11

July 18, 2022 @ EST 9:00 am - July 22, 2022 @ EST 12:00 pm


Have you ever wondered what it’s like living in a magical world, like that of Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, or The Borrowers? How do we leave everyday routines and leap into fantastical realms? Better yet, how do we create our own? Come explore surprising worlds of all shapes and sizes and learn new perspectives from which to construct original, in-depth worlds in your creative writing. We’ll take guided tours of Reading Adventureland and other parts of The Strong Museum for inspiration! Writers’ tools, including maps, “rules,” characters, and illustrations will help us build our fictional worlds and begin work on our stories. We’ll share our creations with family and friends on Friday.
