Want to give your reader the ookie spookies? Leave them a bit… freaked out? Then this workshop is perfect for you! Students will develop a short piece of writing about their discovery and first interaction with an unusual and creepy creature. They will learn about the concept of surrealism, and use it to build narrative components such as setting and an emotional response.

Inkblot Poetry
In our High School workshop these holidays, we’re leaning into learning how to think metaphorically. Over an immersive two-hours students will write a short, collaborative poem inspired by Kaye Blegvad’s “Pink Blots: A Chromatic Experiment” in which they interpret what their peers see in a range of inkblot prints.

The best thing about this program was honing my writing and interacting with people that love literature as much as I do.
