The Art of Storytelling

Creative writing program for middle school girls

The program focuses on finding joy and confidence through writing. Students will learn about the various components of storytelling, and will work on developing their own unique voice through testing out a variety of genres. This process will involve playful writing prompts as well as self-reflection. Each session involves instruction on the "art of storytelling" along with an inspirational reading, a writing prompt, and time to share and receive feedback. We follow the Amherst Writing Method, a methodology rooted in the belief that everyone is a writer, and that all feedback must be positive.
