Hosted by volunteer Laura Hershey, this monthly workshop is designed to teach children aged 11-15 the fundamentals of writing and literary analysis in a fun interactive setting.
These workshops will be a combination of lessons, exercises, games and group discussions to introduce students to the literary greats and the important movements of English-language literature. We will be learning a breadth of literary devices and terms in order to analyze texts more deeply and put them to use in our own writing. Each month, we will cover a different author, genre, or time period as we explore the richness and diversity of literature and sharpen our critical reading skills.
