Find Power with the Pen: Discovering Stories through Poetry and Prose
Have a story you want to tell but you don’t know how? Want to help someone else’s story? This workshop will focus on elements of storytelling in both prose and poetry. Participants will learn the importance of setting, character development, imagery, and description. Both poetic form and prose elements will be explored. Besides exploring stories of everyday life, this workshop will also venture into the world of fantasy and fairy tales by looking at the way we depict characters in these stories and how we can help to give a more authentic voice to those who often don’t get to be center stage. All girls will receive a storyteller patch!
