Creative Writing Intensive Openings

June 22, 2020 Upper School News

Students and Parents,

I hope you’re all having a restful summer! I’m writing to let you know that there are still openings for the second session of the Creative Writing Intensive, July 6-10.

This summer’s emphasis is Heroes & Villains! The great fictional conflicts of history are centered around the relationships between good and evil characters. From Odysseus to Harry Potter, from Hamlet to Wonder Woman, great stories are made of heroes, and the villains who threaten them. To make their own contributions to this world of fiction, students will brainstorm and create an original hero/villain match-up. We’ll have some lively discussions on what ingredients go into the making of these characters as well as some focused time for writing scripts and short fiction. By the end of the week, they’ll have finished work to be proud of, and skills they can continue building on for the future.

The cost is $250 and we’ll meet at Ben Lippen each morning form 10:00-12:00.

All the Best,
