Write What Matters | Ages: Teen

July 31, 2023 @ EST 1:00 pm - August 4, 2023 @ EST 4:00 pm


Why do we write? Because as writers, we have to. This upper-level teen workshop dives into the questions authors ask themselves during the drafting process. Why does this matter? Why today? Why am I the person to tell this story? Join a community of teen writers as we work from generative writing prompts and undertake “writing sprints” that free us up for breakthroughs in our work. We’ll write our own author’s bio, read and discuss essays to study the craft of writing, and have the opportunity for a one-on-one meeting with the teaching artist to help flesh out goals. Participants are welcome to bring a work in progress or start a brand new project.
