What’s Your Superpower?
You always knew you were special. Now, you discover that you’re even more special – you have a superpower! How did you get your superpower? What do you do with it? What happens next? It’s all up to you. In this two hour workshop, you will learn about several key elements of storytelling – such as characters, setting, and plot development – and the revision process as you write and illustrate a story about your adventures.
This workshop is intended for ages 6-11
