Writing implements and notebooks/paper will be provided, but if you have favourite writing tools and/or notebooks, please bring them with you!
Writer Kaitlynn Buchbaum will explore different forms of writing: poetry, journaling, fiction, and non-fiction. These forms will allow us to get in touch with ourselves through words, and will help us to get started writing. Activities include: Surrealist Writing; Journaling; Letter Writing; and Fairy Tales.

Letter Writing: Look at examples of how authors write to one another and try writing your own letter to another creative pal.
