HURRAY! This winter I will be teaching with Writopia! It’s a writer’s lab for kids 8-18 – they write memoirs, short stories, plays and screenplays, all in an extremely adult yet also fun environment. I observed a class yesterday and um, they are genius. They are creative, inquisitive and super driven. They have questions about story arch and similies; character flaws and diction. I am so stoked a.) to turn my brain towards fiction writing once again b.) to garner more teaching experience and c.) to be completely in awe of these kids.
I must away now to my time machine, where I will be enrolling my twelve year old self in my own class. (She could have used it. Me.)
