Write Away Workshops: Hold for Applause

826NYC Write Away Workshops
Three Write Away Workshop students perform their writing in front of the class

Hold for Applause: TV & Sitcom Writing

Uh oh…did I do thaaaaat? In the world of sitcoms, our favorite characters get into – and hopefully, out of! – all kinds of dilemmas and problems, all in 30 minutes or less. In this workshop, students will create iconic characters, dive into dialogue, and write side-splitting solutions to the problems presented in their story! At the end, students will leave with a script that’s ready for the camera!

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.
