During this monthly workshop, volunteer Laura Hershey will teach participants aged 10-14 the fundamentals of writing and literary analysis in a fun interactive setting. Each month, there will be a different theme, and participants will learn about various elements of the writer's toolkit (eg. using metaphors, similes, alliteration, etc), proper use of punctuation and paragraphs, and writing styles (eg. narrative, informative, summary, and opinion/argument writing). The workshop will be a combination of lessons, exercises, games and group discussions.
