INSTRUCTOR: Alison Preston
April 28 ~ 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Location: The Purple Cup Cafe
Most writers will tell you, their love for writing began at an early age. We believe it's extremely important to foster and support a young writer's budding creativity so that they not only become skilled and talented writers, but lifelong readers as well.
Join us as we experiment with epistolary forms in our fiction. We’ll use letters (or postcards! or emails!) to better understand where our characters come from, and we’ll use diary and journal entries to deepen the perspectives of our characters and drive forward our plotlines. Do you have a 3rd to 5th grader who would love to explore and expand their love of writing? Sign them up for this fun and interactive 3-hour workshop!
Students are to bring a notebook and something to write with.
ALISON PRESTON is a writer and writing teacher. She holds a BFA in writing & literature from Emerson College, and an MA in secondary English education from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She has written a collection of stories based in northern Colorado, one of which was recently published, with the broader collection still looking for a home. Over the past few months, she finally mustered the courage to start her first novel, and is hard at work on that project. She teaches creative writing in Denver-area schools for Lighthouse Writers Workshop's Young Writers Program, but she lives in Fort Collins and is thrilled to be teaching youth classes for Northern Colorado Writers for the first time.
