Youth Programs presents a writing workshop just for high-school teachers. Portland author and Writers in the Schools writer-in-residence Cari Luna will guide participants through a series of prompts to produce original fiction. We’ll look at how freewriting can be used to build story scene by scene, with an eye toward the narrative building blocks of character, setting, voice, and conflict. Come willing to experiment with your own writing, and gain narrative tools and techniques to bring back to the classroom.. Note that participants for this workshop must purchase a Festival Pass to attend. Festival passes will be available the day of and are also available at https://portlandartmuseum.org/pdxbookfest/

Cari Luna is the author of The Revolution of Every Day, which won the Oregon Book Award for Fiction. A fellow of Yaddo and Ragdale, her writing has appeared in Guernica, Salon, Jacobin, Electric Literature, Catapult, The Rumpus, PANK, and elsewhere.
