Brian McDonald will lead the "How to Write" workshops on September 13 & 14 helping student storytellers step outside of the norm and open up to possibilities. In addition to basic story structure, they also learn to express the sincere reason they tell stories.
Shawn Wong will lead the "Write" workshops on September 27 & 28 showing student storytellers how characters work on the page and as surrogates for ourselves. They also learn to make their tales universally accessible while sincerely personal.
