Writing Workshop for Teens

The first class will be on the writing format, microfiction.  Shorter than short stories but still full of plot and character development, teens will learn how to capture this popular format.  Microfiction tends to be less than 500 words, and will force writers to think more critically about what they write.  Check out some examples here! Professor Leah Nielsen will assist teens in keeping stories short, sweet, and compelling.    

The Writing Workshop for Teens will be a series of classes taught by Westfield State University's assistant professor, Leah Nielsen.  Leah is an accomplished writer of two published books of poetry.  While poetry is her bread and butter, Leah loves all formats and genres of writing.  At Westfield State University, Leah teaches classes like writing poetry, creative writing, and career preperation for writers, a class that she designed.  Leah is excited to pass on her knowledge of writing to next generation of writers and inspire teens to keep writing!

For students going into grades 6-12

Writing Workshop for Teens

The final class will cover the format and style of performance poetry.  This poetry is written specifically to be performed, or spoken out loud.  Check out this video of three girls performing poetry on the Queen Latifah Show.  Performance poetry, like all poetry, can be controversial and tackle large societal issues.  Professor Leah Nielsen will assist students in creating their own performance.  Teens will have a chance to perform their poetry on stage in the Lang Auditorium. 

The Writing Workshop for Teens will be a series of classes taught by Westfield State University's assistant professor, Leah Nielsen.  Leah is an accomplished writer of two published books of poetry.  While poetry is her bread and butter, Leah loves all formats and genres of writing.  At Westfield State University, Leah teaches classes like writing poetry, creative writing, and career preperation for writers, a class that she designed.  Leah is excited to pass on her knowledge of writing to next generation of writers and inspire teens to keep writing!

For students going into grades 6-12

Please register, space is limited!
