We all know Santa’s reindeer and the song of the most famous reindeer of all. But what about his other helpers, the elves? In this holiday creative writing and publishing workshop, students re-invent the reindeer song for the elves and create stories for each elf about why he/she deserves the title of Most Famous Elf of All… This course will run for 4-5 group sessions, depending on the length of the session, followed by a one-on-one session for each student to provide additional support as they revise and edit their story to be published.
