Summer Reading 2023: Our Stories: Creative Writing Workshop
May 31 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Winter Park Public Library hosts a weekly workshop with instructor and author Jaime Lee Lewis. Lewis discusses a different element of good story writing in each class and gives students time to practice these elements in their writing along with opportunities to read and discuss their work. This course culminates in an opportunity for students to share their work aloud at the Celebration of Stories at the Edyth Bush Theatre with friends and family. Snacks, writing tools, and inspiration is provided throughout. Students must enroll in the first session to attend the entire series. The course consists of four one-hour sessions, held weekly May 31 through June 21. Jaime Lee Lewis is a writer, educator, and Nuyorican Grand Slam Champion Poet.
This Summer Reading 2023 program was sponsored in part by Florida Humanities with funds from the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
