Here is more about it: “This is a workshop for teens who write fiction. There will be no instruction and nothing is mandatory, it will just be writing prompts, writing (lots of writing!), story discussion and the opportunity to hang out with other teen authors. If this sounds fun to your teen, come check it out! Parents are welcome to drop off or hang out and chat with other parents. We do ask that if you can, please purchase something, no matter how small, so we aren’t just taking up space, but if you can’t, please still come anyway.”
