Legends of Fantasylands (Ages 10-13)
Overview
Have you ever wanted to create your own world? A world where you made the rules and anything was possible? In this summer creative writing workshop for ages 10-13, students will draw an extensive map of a fantasy world—its deserts and rivers, its cities and coasts, its evil swamps and enchanted forests. Then, they will write the legends of these fantasy lands. Like the scribes of old, they will warn travellers of the trolls under the cliffs or tell them of the treasure hidden beneath the ancient temples.
