Off the Page Teen Writing Workshop: Writing Time-Travel: How to Figure Out When You Are, Save the Present, and Escape the Time Loop

November 13, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

North Port Library hosts a teen writing workshop with Ringling College of Art and Design as part of “Off the Page Literary Celebration.” The TARDIS, the DeLorean, the Groundhog. These icons of media have one thing in common- time travel! North Port Library invites teens to explore the twists and turns of time-travel fiction, examine what time-travel stories can do, and all the nit-picky questions these stories bring up. In this workshop, teens will look at pop culture to show how to research history for maximum fun, create the future they want to see, and teach characters essential lessons in the present.

Funding is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Book Festival Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Library Foundation for Sarasota County.
