“Write YOUR Story” Weekly Writing Workshop @ Curious Kidstuff Toy Store
Sep 25 @ 3:15 pm – 4:15 pm

“Write YOUR Story” is now enrolling for fall 2019 writing workshops! These are free writing workshops for children 8-12.

Workshops run 3:15pm to 4:15pm, every Wednesday from September 25 to December
18. (There will be no class Nov. 13.)

All sessions are taught by West Seattle residents Julia Douthwaite Viglione, PhD, and Greg Estes.

Participation in the series is free of charge. In return for this unique opportunity, though, participants are expected to attend every class.

The fall 2019 theme is Journeys. We will read stories about: 1) The journey to a new home: Jean de Brunhoff’s “The Story of Babar,” 2) The initiation journey: Darcy Pattison’s “The River Dragon,” and 3) A maritime adventure: Gloria Rand’s “Aloha, Salty!”

The free writing workshops were established in 2012 in South Bend, Indiana by Notre Dame Professor Julia Douthwaite Viglione (French language and literature) who returned home to West Seattle last year and brought “Write YOUR Story” to Seattle. Join kids from local schools as we read and rewrite a classic children’s story. In the second half, children write their own stories and a great party is had at the end!
