June 10: Write Your Own Comic Book

A picture is worth a thousand words; learn how to tell your story in image and text! This hands-on workshop will help you identify the visual language of comics and apply it to your own creative or non-fiction stories. You don’t need to be an artist to join us—just bring your best ideas!

June 11: Creative Writing

Nurture your creative side with a day of writing activities designed to sharpen your skills of observation, analysis, expression, and communication. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll look at how poems, short stories, and personal narratives are put together and practice writing our own.
