Face Off
Overview
“Race you!” is a cry heard across playgrounds and parks the world over. Children relish the thrill of competition and devise all manner of races to try and outdo their friends. In this summer creative writing and publishing workshop, however, it’s not the kids who are competing, but their toys! Inspired by Shark vs. Train, students will write stories about what happens when rubber ducks, Lego and stuffed animals face off. Who would win a thumb war or a game of Scrabble?
