Feb 16-18
It's the Year of the Ox and this Chinese New Year, our students will be inspired by stories and rhymes of cows and oxen. In the famous nursery rhyme, "Hey Diddle Diddle", the cow jumped over the moon, but the questions is WHY? In this holiday creative writing and publishing workshop, students will reveal the true stories of what happened that day... (As with all our online publishing workshops, the group sessions will be followed by a 30-min one-on-one session for each student. For the CNY workshops, these will be scheduled on Feb 19.)
