Youth Workshop: Writing When We’re Far Apart

Saturday, November 14, 2020
2:30 - 4:30 p.m.
For grades 6-8.

Free: pre-registration required, donations accepted

For most of us, this year has made it hard to say all the things we want to share with family and friends who don’t live with us. Even if we get to stay in touch with texts or Zoom or TikTok, there are always more stories to tell! In this class, we’ll write about memories of times we spent with family and friends who are far away, remembering big and small events with them that mattered to us.  We’ll also write letters to the people who can’t be with us right now, and try out some different ways to use writing to imagine that they’re together with us. Grades 6-8. Instructor: Jennifer Perrine.
