Rip ALL the Pages! A Creative Writing Summer “Play-Shop” for Kids. 

Sharpen your observations skills, dive into the deep-end of original detail, and master your own metaphors and similes.

Limited to 18 students (ages 9-12) the only requirement is a favorite pen and a willingness to surprise yourself. We’ll tip words over to find out what breathes underneath, hike for haiku, sneak around and listen—aka eavesdrop!—for dialog, explore making images to create our poems, sudden fiction, letters, and more. 

All materials and sort-of-healthy snacks included.
