Breaking the Page: Experimental Writing for High Schoolers

Breaking the Page: Experimental Writing
Grades: 11-12

Description: Students will write personal narratives in which they'll experiment with form, genre, and visual elements in writing. This can include writing stories in lists, arranging text uniquely on the page, combining poetry and prose, and other ways of breaking conventional writing structure. This will be a great opportunity for students to explore writing in a new way. It will provide an outlet for advanced writers to challenge themselves. This creative workshop will also be useful to students who often find themselves with "writer's block."

Dates: March 30, April 6, and April 13, 2019
Time: 4 PM - 6 PM

Fee: $75.00*
