This past Saturday, I led a writing workshop for children – ages 7-12 in Edgerton, WI. The workshop attendees were very interested in the writing process and some brought samples of their own stories to share! We had lots of fun talking about how writers get ideas and use their imagination. We used mentor texts to discuss how stories are organized and what works in a good story. Each writer left with their own journal to start recording their thoughts and ideas. There was also an adult workshop. Proceeds from the workshops benefit the 2016 Sterling North Book & Film Festival, to be held Nov. 5 in Edgerton.
