Do you write poems, stories, blogs, comics, essays, comics, songs, limericks? Join us for the Schlessman Summer of Reading Teen Writing group, where we will talk about writing--ours, yours, everyone’s. Instead of critiquing or “correcting,” we will focus on questioning ourselves about how we write and exploring our writing! It doesn’t matter if you’re at the beginning, middle or end of your project, you just have to be able to talk about it!
This month we will be exploring fairy tales - our book is "Cinderellis and the Glass Hill," by Gail Carson Levine. This book has a fun twist - Cinderellis is a boy! Optional - bring your favorite fairy tale book to share, either traditional or fractured! Activity: Fairy Tale Drama Circle
