Prep/Plan Your Novel – Fall 2022

GRADES 8–12: Unlock your creativity and create unforgettable characters in this six-week novel planning workshop for teens (ages 13-18). Learn how to plot a storyline and build a world where your characters jump off the page and into the hearts and minds of your readers. Writers will participate in interactive and collaborative activities to generate raw material for a full-length novel.
