Calling All Monsters: Spooky Stories

Werewolves, vampires, and giant squids — it’s time to party with the monsters! During this workshop students will learn the lore of famed mythical monsters like Dracula, the Wolfman, and even La Chupacabra. Using classic elements of spooky stories and monster mayhem, students will create their own monsters, writing a short story and building a small-scale monster model.

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.
