Young Authors Day (Grades 2-9)

Monday, October 1 – Friday, October 5, 2018

Tuesday, October 9 – Friday, October 12, 2018

Learn the principles of storytelling from a very unlikely person! Young Authors Day is designed to support and enhance the creative writing curriculum. The day begins with an all-school assembly by a classically trained mime artist introducing students to the “art of silence.” The performer discusses the differences between writing for the stage and writing for the page as the components of a story are explained. He stresses the importance of structure and he tells the students where to get inspiration for their own original stories. Freshly inspired, your students then return to their classrooms to write their stories for the performer. During the writing process, the performer stops in classrooms to answer questions and help with the writing. The day culminates with a second afternoon assembly in which the students are recognized for their fine work. A number of their own stories are selected ad are then actually acted out by the performer, live, for the entire school to enjoy. This program is, again, an all-day program, and one of our very best.
