We are excited to announce our writing workshops during Winter Break!
Head here to sign up: https://www.belmontyouthwriters.org/winter-workshop-registration
Classes will be held on Zoom and will include both simple exercises and more complex activities.
We will hold 3 different two-hour clinics on the following topics:
– Debate: learn how to develop arguments and apply evidence to a thesis/claim.
– Storyline and Themes: learn how to develop plots and find/create themes in their stories
– Show, Don’t Tell: give the reader actions, thoughts, senses, and feelings rather than simple descriptions.
We hope to see you there!
