Come novelists, short-story writers and poets alike! Society of Young Inklings’ unique methodology uses active improvisational games to inspire young writers in their creative process. Each writer will work on his or her own unique creative project, applying techniques and strategies in practical ways. Young writers will explore the finer points of story development through creative activities, facilitated critique sessions, writing time and one on one conferring. Students may feel free to come to class with a creative writing work-in-progress, or begin from the very beginning. Each young writer will receive a workbook and journal. Writers will have an opportunity to share their masterpieces with family and friends on the last day of the workshop. Cubberley Community Center Campers are welcome to enjoy a full day of Young Inklings camps by registering for a morning Story Studio camp AND the afternoon Story Theater!
