Ignite Peoria was so much fun!
We hosted two informal workshops for kids this afternoon. We came armed with handouts and workbooks, and had a great time talking about some story basics!
Turns out, most of our audience was already well-versed in fiction mechanics. We spent our time talking about their experiences writing and how to trouble-shoot when they run into problems, deal with writer’s block, don’t know what to write next, or even how to deal with the dreaded inner editor!
I loved meeting each and every one of our young writers. To them, and to you, I wish you,
