Workshops



Workshops range from the playful to the practical, and are taught by volunteer writers, artists, educators, and publishing professionals.

Please note: Due to a high interest in this program and our commitment to keeping class sizes small, workshop attendance is determined by lottery. Once the lottery has been drawn, you will be notified of your status. Please only sign up for a workshop if you can make every session, as we generally have a lengthy wait list. If admitted to a workshop, we’ll require a $25 refundable deposit to hold your spot.

Mystery Writing for Aspiring Sleuths

1 Friday session: December 12

3:30-5:30pm

Taught by Alyse Wexler

For ages 9-11 years old

It’s sleuthing time! You are a world-renowned detective and your arch nemesis has just pulled off a major heist: he or she has stolen a T-Rex from the Museum of Natural History.  No one knows how your nemesis did it, who helped, or where it has been hidden it. Using as cast of suspicious characters and a bunch of clues, your task in this one-session workshop is to solve the mystery by writing your own story and surprise ending.

Due to limited space and a high volume of interest in our programs, students will be admitted to this workshop on a lottery basis. The lottery for this workshop will be pulled on Sunday, December 7th.
