Delightful Workshop at Platte Valley HS

Local author conducts workshop on scene setting for middle and high schoolers.

Author Sandy Crowley conducts a workshop on scene setting for middle and high schoolers.

My last post has my general recommendations for the students at the workshop based on my review of their work. Well, Saturday I got to meet the students firsthand. My workshop was about creating characters. I showed the kids pictures out of my old high school yearbook (yes, a few were actually in color) and we invented characters together. What fun! The kids participated fully and eagerly and we constructed a delightful little love triangle with two boys and one girl. I showed them how they could create the main conflict scene just from the character personalities. (More to come.)
