Teen Night: Story Sprints with Noah Weisz (ages 12–18)

Fri 24 November 2023 @ 19 h 00 - 21 h 30

Meet other writers as you create an original short story.

Get ready to race against the clock in this wildly creative team writing challenge! Your mission: in a single evening, work together to brainstorm, plan out, and write a full-length short story, complete with compelling characters, an exciting plot, and maybe even a few surprise twists! While each writer will contribute their own scenes and their own voice, the story has to fit together into a coherent and satisfying whole. Through this madcap, fast-paced workshop, you’ll experience a snapshot of the full writing process—and witness firsthand the ways that collaboration and fearless speed-writing can fuel creativity and make writing more fun than ever.

Pizza and drinks will be provided by the Library. Please note the late end time for this event.
