Memoir Into Make-Believe: Turning Your Life Into Fiction

     Do you love writing for children or teens, but sometimes don’t know where to start? How about your own memories? In this generative workshop, you’ll write a short memoir piece from a prompt. Then, you’ll transform that piece into fiction for young readers. You’ll learn how altering story elements such as conflict, point of view, and event outcomes can spark an entirely new work. New and experienced writers welcome!

$5.00, SCBWI members only
