WRITING WORKSHOP FOR TEENAGERS: This is a 3-day workshop for teenagers who love to write and want to learn fiction writing techniques from an author. Participants analyze writing techniques from novels, learn writer’s tricks, and most importantly write stories, receive feedback, and keep on writing. They learn to bring nuanced characters to life, devise a plot and change it as necessary while they write, include backstory without slowing a story down, work through the ups and downs of daily writing, and what it’s like to be a working artist.
Duration: Three days (usually Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), three-and-a-half hours per day
Write to workshop (at) keithbooks (plus the usual dot com) with the subject line “Teenager Workshop” for more information.
