Genies, Magic, and Narrative Writing
It’s your lucky day! You’ve met a genie who will grant you three wishes. What happens next? It’s all up to you. In this workshop, you will learn about several key elements of storytelling – such as characters, setting, and action – and the revision process as you write a short story about the genie, the three wishes, and how your characters handle this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Join us for a workshop full of magic, adventure, and surprise twists!
This workshop is intended for ages 6-8.
**Please note this workshop includes multiple sessions**
