October: Boo! Scary Stories 

Can you tell a scary in six words? Have you ever written a ghost story? During October we'll invent monsters and villains and put them into scary poems and stories. Come for one day and write a short scary story or attend both and start working on your National Novel Writing Month Book! 

November: National Novel Writing Month 

Come write a short novel for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Over the course of the month, students will create characters, dream up a setting, craft a plot, and write a novella (that’s a really short novel). 

December: Art and Poetry 

For students who love to create with both pictures and words, this workshop will provide you with wonderful inspiration from the world of picture books and art (and snow if we have it)! Write your poems in reaction to nature, picture books, and famous works of art. Create art to accompany your favorite words. And learn how to make art with words.
