Virtual Youth Programs

We’ve moved online! All workshops will be conducted through Zoom, an interactive platform that allows you to participate in exercises and contribute to group conversation. The day before your workshop, you’ll receive an email with a link to your Zoom session.  

Writers & Books is now offering a variety of virtual programs for youth ages 7-17 on weekdays in May & June:

One-Time Camps

One-time classes are one or two hours long, and offer a variety of topics from poetry and journaling to theatre and even Raina Telgemeier's graphic novel Guts!

Multi-Session Camps

Multi-session classes are one-hour long and happen once a week for 2-4 weeks. Topics include poetry, reimagining stories, and collaborations with Flower City Arts Center combining images and words.

Drop-In Sessions

Drop-In sessions are one-to-two hours long and take place many times, with different curriculum each time. Students can attend one, a couple, or all, and can join in any week, whether they attended previous sessions or not. Topics include defense against the dark arts, improv, building narrative skills, and stories to grow on.
