This FREE three-week course for young women and non-binary artists provides participants with the opportunity to develop their craft as writers and storytellers. Led by author Megan Stielstra, participants will dig into a myriad of forms including memoir, criticism, investigation, reflection, and the delicious and often messy ways that writers have blurred those lines between them.

Pulling from both literary and oral storytelling traditions, participants will engage in activities to move their stories out of the body and onto the page, encouraging risk and discovery and examining literary craft in new ways. Over the course of six two-and-a-half-hour sessions, each writer will choose one idea to develop and take it through multiple drafts that work towards their individual goals.

Open to young women and non-binary individuals ages 14-23. Writers at all levels are welcome.
