Creating Scary Characters: A Writing Workshop (ages 8–12)

October 9 @ 11 h 00 min - 12 h 30 min

For Library members ages 8-12

Work on your own original short story, and create compelling villainous characters, with help from other young writers


We’ll look at classic and contemporary villains from English-language literature, and discuss the characters together. Then, we’ll look at examples of interesting and fully-developed characters before creating our own. Participants will also get advance information about the Library’s 2022 Young Authors Fiction Festival. 

Participants are encouraged to register for our workshop on creating short stories, which will be held on 25 September.

Advance registration is required for this event. Participation in this event is free for Library members. If you are not yet a Library member, but would like to participate, please join the Library. Parents and other caregivers are expected to familiarize themselves with these guidelines so that we can provide a pleasant library environment for all patrons.
