Bay Area Writing Project Teen Writing Camps
Tell your own story: Creative Writing 101
10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Course FULL

Do you have stories to tell? Characters in your head? A notebook full of scenes? This summer, join other creative writers in reading short stories and creative nonfiction that break the rules, and discover how to write your own story.

In this course you’ll have the opportunity to hack the techniques published writers use to tell their stories, like building unforgettable characters, unexpected scenes, and beautiful detail, and practice using these techniques yourself. We’ll spend time reading, writing, and workshopping together.

Note: this course is full at this time, but contact the Bay Area Writing Project if you'd like to be added to the waitlist.
