Overview
Based on the modern classic Christmas movie, Home Alone, students in this 3-day holiday creative writing workshop will write about their characters’ adventures when left alone for Christmas — at home in Hong Kong or at the family vacation destination. Students will explore how characters cope with the situation, the people they meet, and both the comedic and touching moments along the way. The online section of this course will run for 4-5 group sessions, depending on the class length, followed by a one-on-one session for each student to provide additional support as they prepare their final stories to be published.
