July 24 – MADNESS, MYSTERY, MAYHEM! – with Erin Vance – Write stories and characters that thrill and scare you. Find for your inner Sherlock Holmes or Jake Peralta while searching for clues.
August 7- WORLD BUILDING – with Dania Idriss – Spend the day learning the elements of genre and effective world-building, primarily Science Fiction and Fantasy (we will also be looking briefly at comic books) and apply those elements to their writing. Experiment in creating your own imaginative worlds in genres ranging from Black Mirror to Game of Thrones.
August 14 – CHARACTER BOOT CAMP – with Suzy Vadori – Characters make the story, and writers get to make the characters. Personality, actions, appearance, emotions… so many layers go into making characters what we imagine in our minds. In this creative camp, we’ll learn tips and tricks to make our characters jump off the page and run down the street!
