Book Launch Writing Workshop #3: The Idea Jar
Writers-in-residence from the Writers in the Schools (WITS) Program at Seattle Arts & Lectures will offer four different hour-long workshops for school-age students in the downstairs “Reading Room” at Elliott Bay Book Company.
Workshop 3: The Idea Jar
Age Level: High School
Jack London said, “You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” In this hands-on workshop, we will create jars full of inspiration in the form of writing prompts. After brainstorming on the qualities of a good prompt, students will create a piece of text from one of the suggestions provided. Then, we will decorate jars and make enough writing prompts to fill them up. We provide the jars, you provide the ideas! RSVP Required.
