Teen Night: Write Your Short Story with Amy Plum (ages 12–18)

Fri March 22 @ 19 h 00 - 21 h 00

Craft your own original short story with help from bestselling author Amy Plum!

Begin your own original short story during this interactive writing workshop. Novels, and short stories are distinct art forms. Each has common elements, and we will discuss them and begin our own short stories together, with time to share for those who want feedback. The workshop includes Amy’s tips on how to write a story with credible characters, believable setting, and fully rounded plot in less than 1000 words.

About Amy Plum: Amy Plum is the author of Die for Me, an international bestselling Young Adult series set in Paris. Her books have been translated into thirteen languages. Her second series is a duology After the End and Until the Beginning, which she describes as “a faux-post-apocalyptic, road trip, adventure, romance, thriller with a bit of magic.” Her third series is the Dreamfall duology: Dreamfall and Neverwake. Amy grew up in Birmingham, Alabama before venturing further afield to Chicago, Paris, London and New York. An art historian by training, she can be found on most days either daydreaming or writing (or both) in a Parisian café. To find out more about Amy, and writing classes in Paris, visit her website.
