Ted the Tax Man: Stories of the Ordinary

Have you ever wondered what “normal” adults do everyday? Is it all just typing on computers and filing tax forms…or is there something more? In this workshop, students will imagine everyday characters who may not appear to be special on the outside, but have extraordinary stories lurking just below the surface. We’ll explore these not-so-ordinary adults with stories, character sketches, and even resumes, because isn’t being thorough what adulting is all about?

About Write Away Workshops

We know that young authors have the power and imagination to go beyond the five-paragraph essay. In Write Away Workshops, students explore a multitude of genres and subjects, and develop their voices as writers. Groups write freely and participate in imaginative writing activities and lessons. Young writers leave each workshop with a piece to be proud of, as well as a newfound understanding of the topic and new friends.


Registration for this class is now open. Questions? Email or call 718-499-9884.
