Friday Night Writes!

With RYW Community Collaborator Kristin Hott & intern Odessa Hott

For ages 9-12


$35/Session, dinner included! (Pizza, salad, dessert. Mmm.)

Make it a night out with Richmond Young Writers: a Friday evening upstairs with a pen in one hand and a slice of pizza in the other.  Let your parents fend for themselves at a nearby restaurant while we crank out stories and get crazy with the cheese whiz. New twists on some favorite games, silent movie screenwriting skits, terrarium tales, speed Haiku and shadow puppetry are all on the menu.  Bring your night vision goggles, a journal and an empty belly!  

Each workshop is a stand-alone session.  Sign up for as many as you like!

August 18th:  That Crook!... and The Low Country Boil

Someone has stolen Chef Regard's recipe for his regionally renown, only slightly celebrated Shrimp & Grits...but you can bet he's boilin' mad.  (that means he's pretty darn upset, y'all).  He's hired the No. 3 Detective Agency to nab the greasy fingered crook and recover this recipe... and the special paper it's written on.  You'll wade through a swamp, wrestle a full-size croc and, hopefully, untangle the mystery in time for the Riparian Raptor Tent Revival, where Chef Regard plans to take home at least last place trophy. You, too, may be rewarded. It just depends on Chef Regard's mood. Join us for this delicious "Escape Room" style creative writing event.  Dinner and dessert included. You bring the "special spice."

Dinner:  Low Country Boil (of course!):  New Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, Seasoned Shrimp  w/ Salad & Bread

Dessert: Strawberry Shortcake
