About the Event
"You Got a Friend in Me” Writing Workshop
Join Eileen Moskowitz-Palma, author of the School Squad and Camp Clique series, for "You Got a Friend in Me” a writing workshop to help create short stories about two friends resolving their conflict.
The most important components of a page-turning short story are character and conflict. In this workshop, students will write short stories about two friends who are having a problem. The workshop will include a mini lesson about how to generate a conflict that will drive the short story. There will be a brainstorming session where students can discuss the types of problems friends have, then students will use a writing prompt to begin writing. Students will have the opportunity to share their work and give each other positive and helpful feedback.
With thanks to Lisa Lawrence of Wunderkind Early Learning for generously sponsoring this event.
