Youth Writing Workshop with Dan Lutts
The focus of this two-day workshop is generating fantasy-world concepts, creating characters and landscapes and developing them with depth and plausibility. Dan writes, ‘In the workshop you will learn the basic components that make up fantasy worlds. Then, using pen and paper, you will create your own fantasy world, be it high fantasy, low fantasy, dark fantasy, urban fantasy—or any other kind of fantasy you enjoy. The emphasis is on imagination and creativity.’
Space is limited to 10 participants who are rising 9th graders and students ages 14 and up. Students will storyboard collaboratively, write independently and share ideas and work during the workshop, and will be encouraged to continue writing on their own time. All materials will be provided.
