Words on a Page: Writing Craft Workshop for Teens series with d. ellis phelps
Writing from Life: Creative Non-Fiction
Maybe your dog got lost and you searched and finally found it. Maybe you went to summer camp and felt homesick or fell in love. Maybe you moved and had to make all new friends. No matter what, you are sure to have true stories to tell about your life and experiences. In this writing craft workshop, we’ll look at a few writing samples and write a piece of creative-non-fiction. Finally, we’ll share our work, giving and receiving soft-feedback.
