4-DAY CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP for Ages 12+ with LAURIE FARIA STOLARZ
Students will work to develop, nurture, and improve their writing craft in a fun and supportive group. We will work on such literary devices as setting, character, and plot. We will discuss how closely these devices are linked in creating believable stories. We will learn from other writers by examining their style through excerpts. We will also practice these styles through group and individual exercises. Students are encouraged to be creative and ready to try new things. Please bring a notebook and pen.
The instructor: Laurie Faria Stolarz is the author of several popular young adult novels including theTouch series (the latest release of which is Deadly Little Voices), Project 17, and Bleed, (all published by Disney/Hyperion Books for Children), as well as the bestselling Blue is for Nightmares series (Flux Publications). With more than a million books in print worldwide, Stolarz’s titles have been named on numerous award lists, including the Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers list and the Top Ten Teen Pick list, both through the American Library Association. Stolarz attended Merrimack College and received anMFA in creative writing from Emerson College in Boston. For more information, please visit her Web site at www.lauriestolarz.com.
