SPECIAL GUEST WORKSHOP WITH AUTHOR DAVID HICKS
Remember that Terrible Day You Had? You Could Turn It Into a Great Story.
Sunday, June 11th, 2-4pm, ages 10-14
Join visiting author David Hicks to come up with a brilliant new story idea! By tapping into a formula you know well—the one that begins “Once upon a time” followed by “And then one day”—you can turn a bad day into a good story. In this workshop, you will begin to compose several such stories, and lay out the structure for one of them from beginning to end. You will leave the workshop with a draft of a new story or novel, along with the framework of two more, and a much better understanding of how stories (and character development) work.
