Nonfiction That Sings:  Finding A Narrative Thread

Effectively-rendered nonfiction is not just a collection of facts. To resonate with an audience, it needs a narrative framework. Where do you begin and how do you tease the “story” out of your topic?

They Wrote It Here, all-day class

From flowery Victorian prose to popular fiction to memoir filtered by the author’s eyes, various writers have captured Rocky Mountain National Park and the surrounding area in words. We’ll visit up to 5 sites, where we’ll read selected writings, discuss them, then write a piece or journal entry of our own describing this place today, or reacting to the historical passage.

Lighthouse Writers Workshop - Young Writers Program

The Stories Nature Tells Us - 4 pm - 6 pm

For Young Writers in Grades 3-4 
 
The natural world is full of stories! In this workshop, we'll explore using our physical senses to “hear” nature's stories, and use our sixth sense to understand what they mean to us. Then we’ll create our own stories and poems based on what we discover. We might become a fox or a cloud and write about our life, or weave a poem describing the world, and our feelings, using only colors. We’ll spend time outdoors as weather allows, and explore the treasures within The Bone Box when it doesn't. At the end of this session, each young writer will have the opportunity to publish a finished piece on the Lighthouse Young Writers Blog.
