Painting with Words: Bringing Writing to Life

  • Time of Day

    Morning Class (9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CST)

Authors are always adding to their toolbox of tricks to create writing that jumps off the page.  In this course, we will learn how to play with words so your own writing comes to life!  You will learn how to write powerful descriptions and find your author’s voice.  You will get time to practice your new writing tricks and perhaps even write a short story or two.  We will study passages from great young authors’ books and even meet some local writers!  If you enjoy reading and writing, this is the class for you!
