Create Your Own Fantasy & Science Fiction Stories – Winter 2022

GRADES 5–7: From Harry Potter to The BFG, from Percy Jackson to The Martian Chronicles… We will read excerpts from various fantasy and science fiction books and graphic novels to learn how to create amazing worlds and heroic characters. We will discuss how these stories fit the model of Joseph Campbell’s “Hero’s Journey” and create our own stories.

Led by poet Carole Johnston, former school library media specialist for grades K–8 and former creative writing instructor for the SCAPA program at Lafayette High School.
