Jennifer Alvarez : Creative Writing for Kids

Where do authors get their ideas? How do questions become stories? In this fun interactive workshop, children will learn how to turn their own questions and ideas into exciting tales. Elements of the writers' craft will be explored, including plot, narrative tension, and world building. Come prepared to write!
