The Trumpet: Creative Magazine Publishing
Students in these creative writing and magazine publishing workshops will be key contributors to ECP’s magazine, The Trumpet! Over one block of classes, students will focus on two particular writing skills and write different text types, such as stories, newspaper articles and poems. They will revise and edit their pieces, but ultimately select their favourite to be in the magazine, which will be published in print! (For ages 6-11)
