Spellbound Young Writers Series
Flash Fiction for Rising 3rd-5th Graders
Sunday, August 9th 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
During this workshop, the class will talk about writing and brainstorm about the parts of a story. Focus is on ‘flash’ fiction, which is typically defined as stories under 1000 words. This way participants will have time to write some complete pieces, beginning with the shortest of flash fiction: the six-word story. These are incredibly fun and often inspire creativity. We’ll build up from there and generate two to five-sentence stories, and, time permitting, longer pieces.
The workshop is led by Laurie McKay, an educator from Durham, NC who is the author of The Last Dragon Keeper series from Harper Collins. Read more about it here.
Pre-registration is suggested. Walk-ins (pay at the door) welcome as space allows. Max capacity 10 participants. Fee is $15 OR purchase of Laurie’s book The Villain Keeper (#1 in the series) from Spellbound. Parents are welcome to drop off students at 2:00 and return for them by 3:30.
