What makes Harry Potter, Bella Swan, and Spongebob Squarepants come to life? Who created the world of The Lord of the Rings, Alice in Wonderland, or The Wizard of Oz? The writer! This program for youth will cover fiction and non-fiction writing for the page, the screen and the stage. The program will encourage students to think critically by breaking down “who, what, when, where, and why?” and to dig deep into their imaginations to create their own thrilling tales.
