If you know of a teen or younger aspiring writer who would benefit from joining with other young writers, check out these offerings from San Diego Writers, Ink.
12/17 Teen Monologues
Do you have teens interested in Shakespeare or how to craft a monologue of their own? If so, be sure to have them join Robbie Hammel for Introduction to Shakespearean Monologues (For Teens)! In this class, we will discuss the basics of a Shakespearean monologue and go over the form and structure of the poetry involved. Bring paper and pen and leave with your own version of a sonnet! This one-day class will be held IN PERSON at our space in Inspirations Gallery (upstairs in Barracks 16) on Saturday, 12/17 from 12:30pm to 2:30pm. Sign up here!
12/19 Winter Writing Camp
Attention young writers! You might journal or make up stories or write the occasional poem. And if that’s you—we want to hang with you this winter break! At Young Ink Winter Camp with Kristen Fogle, you will meet other writers your age, write to fun prompts, and try your hand at different genres, styles, and writing activities. At the end you’ll have a book of writing, know a little more about the craft of the written word, and hopefully meet a writing buddy or two.
This one-week camp for kids will be held IN PERSON at our space in Inspirations Gallery starting on Monday, 12/19. We will have two sessions: 9am to 10:45am (recommended for ages 8-10) and 11am to 12:15pm (recommended for ages 11-13). Cost for the week is $85, and we have scholarships and equity pricing available. Sign up your Young Ink writers here!
Editor's Note: Many San Diego Writers and Editors Guild members are also members of San Diego Writers, Ink. The two organizations offer different benefits to their writer members. We encourage our members to check out San Diego Writers, Ink as well.
