Young writers will find an ordinary object, indoors or outdoors, that can magically transform into a portal to an altered universe! We’ll sketch it out and add descriptive words. Then we will use a guided visualization and literary models like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Wildwood to help create a scene. It can be Portland with a twist, or something entirely from a fantasy world. Prompts will be offered to help participants, if needed, such as: Imagine you found something through the portal that you desperately want to keep—but someone’s preventing your return. Participants are encouraged to share their sketches or photographs and scenes. Parents are welcome, but students can participate on their own. (Grades 3-5). Instructor: Alex Behr.
