Genre Session Descriptions for March 16:
Creative Nonfiction into Poetry: Turn prose into free-verse and haiku poetry using true stories. You'll choose from a variety of questions to tell your stories.
Girl Stories: Friendship, fashion, love, and more. Write true stories, fiction, and poetry on topics of interest to girls.
Do you like to make people laugh? In this session, you'll figure out what makes a piece of writing funny, explore different formats for humor pieces, and get started on your own project.
Everyone has a story to tell. Find out how to share your story in writing in a way that is interesting, engaging, and relatable. You'll learn about different kinds of personal narrative and explore how to express universal values through a personal experience. You'll start building your own toolkit for personal narrative writing and get started on a project.
Sci-Fi (First Session)
Turning a good tech bad - in this session, we'll try our pen at taking a good technology, futurizing it, and then turning it bad. Did the cure for cancer come with a side of zombies? Did the first Mars landing wake up a dormant alien race? Did emojis finally go too far and we accidentally created a killer AI? Write it out and have fun exploring as we develop our sci-fi dystopias.
In this session, we'll focus on creating a believable magical system for our world. You can either come with your own fantasy world started, borrow one from a famous series or movie, or brainstorm your own with us. Once we've got a basic world, we're going to infuse it with some magic and develop our unique set of magical limitations, entities, and backstories.
