For students ages 7-8 and 9-10:
BEHIND OUR FACES
We will look at our own faces and famous portraits to find inspiration for stories, real and imagined.
WHO'S TALKING NOW?
By listening to music and stories aloud, we will sharpen our imaginations to give our characters' voices!
For students ages 11-12 and 13-16:
THIS I BELIEVE
We all believe in something. Together we will listen to radio essays and then write our own narratives on a belief we hold.
LOOK AT THIS! What Makes Graphic Novels Special?
Writers will explore techniques used by popular graphic novelists in order to write and illustrate their own works.
WHAT'S YOUR STORY? Everyone Has One!
Using personal experience as inspiration, we will begin writing stories of our lives, cultivating an environment for connection, reflection, growth, and fun.
