Overview
If Christmas presents come from the North Pole, where do Easter baskets come from? The answer is the REAL Easter Island, where elves paint multicolored eggs, farmers harvest Easter grass, and rabbits pose for chocolate sculptures. In this Easter creative writing and publishing workshop, students invent the land where candy eggs come from and the truth about the Easter Bunny. [Please note: This workshop will be offered both face-to-face and online and the curriculum will be adapted to run over 6-8 hours. Face-to-face sessions will be capped at 4 students per class. Online sections of the workshop will be capped at 6 students per class and include in the course fees a 30-min one-on-one session for each student for additional support as the students revise and edit their work to be published.]
