Eat Me Not
Overview
You have been invited to a wonderful winter meal, but there's no such thing as a free lunch or dinner — especially if you're what's on the menu! In this 4-day holiday creative writing workshop, students will create a food character that's often part of a winter meal and write a story about how he or she tries to avoid ending up on someone’s plate (or in their tummy)! Note: Online sections of this workshop will run for 6 group sessions plus a one-on-one session for each student.
