I’m teaching, MYSTERIOUS, STRANGE & UNUSUAL: A Creative Writing Workshop (Ages 10-17) at the Hoffman Center Kids Art Camp in August. The Hoffman Center is located in Manzanita, Oregon. This is the North Coast of Oregon, about 90 minutes from Portland. Camp runs August 4-8 and my session runs from 10 AM-Noon.
Haunted castles, ghostly sightings and things that go bump in the night all spark great stories. But how do we craft our tales so they are believable to readers? In this hands-on writing workshop, we’ll explore how to build suspense and tension in plot, craft compelling characters and design a mysterious setting. Writers will try some flash fiction, short stories and even a few poems. We’ll share our writing with each other in a workshop setting. Bring those stories which haunt you and let’s turn them into mysterious tales which can be told around beach bonfires.
You can find all the details and register here.
Come play with us at the beach this August in Manzanita, Oregon. It’s gorgeous on the Northern Oregon Coast in August!
