Tell me a story Ages 12-16
What’s a good age to start writing stories?
Now! Right now is a good age.
Tell me a story is an after-school creative writing workshop for your creative thinking and writing skills.
Our goal is to encourage youth ages 8-11 and ages 12-16 to stay explore their own creative process, be able to express themselves confidently and find their voice in storytelling (and in life).
This is NOT a dry grammar class; this is NOT school. At FADE IN: we have FUN!
In an interactive, creative space everyone will have the freedom to create their characters and the world they live in.
We will practice writing exercises and storytelling tools; we will build characters, figure out plots, and create imaginary worlds!
All ages will be encouraged to be writing every day. If you have a cool story to tell, this workshop is for YOU!

Dear Parents:
Tell Me A Story is open to young writers between the ages of 12 and 16. Group sizes are limited to 12 children  to allow for plenty of interaction and the opportunity to workshop ideas.
