Our March Writer's Workshop is modeled on our highly successful summer workshops led by Great Books Academic Directors and professional writers.
This program is 8 consecutive weeks beginning the week of March 8.
Writer's Workshop Middle School Programs (Grades 6-8)
The Fiction Writer's Workshop will explore the craft of prose over 8 weeks, including point of view, the play and pause of time, forward momentum, and style. In the first few sessions, fun writing activities and prompts will help students generate short stories or the beginnings of longer works. Students will then share their pieces with their workshop community, both learning to give and to receive feedback and advice for revision.
Led by Academic Director Jonathan Volk, who received his MFA at the University of Massachusetts MFA Program for Poets & Writers, where he also teaches creative writing.
