Teen Writing Workshop

      Lost Lit is thrilled to have Kathy Moore, a beloved Lost Lit veteran, lead a special 4-week, Teen Writing Workshop.
      CALLING ALL TEENS (ages 14-17)
      For the first time ever, we’re offering Lost Lit’s Get Lit style workshop just for you! This creative writing workshop is the farthest thing from school you can imagine. No homework! No 5-paragraph essay structure or thesis statement or grammar police. Think Summer camp without leaving your own backyard. Without the cheesy team building, ice breaker games. Without the cliques and longing to fit in. In this workshop-you will write! There will be scrumptious snacks. And hopefully, you will have fun!

      Here’s what will happen in every workshop. You’ll be given writing prompts meant to stimulate one or more of the five senses. We write together for a timed amount of time (anywhere between 5-15min). We come back as a group and voluntarily share our writing. By applying the Amherst Writers & Artists method, all feedback with will be treated like fiction, supportive and positive. There is no room for criticism. This method will allow your authentic writer’s voice to emerge, will dare you to go deep into memory, scene and your unconscious. You will walk away with a ton of new, raw writing and a newfound confidence that you are, without a shadow of a doubt, a writer.
