Learn creative writing techniques while exploring amazing fantasy worlds through role-playing games, story writing, and sword fighting adventures! During this workshop, we will discover the secrets that professional writers use to make their novels so captivating. We’ll work on fantasy world-building techniques, arts and crafts, and participate in the Druidawn publishing project as part of the writing curriculum. Students will also learn to solve problems and work together as a team as they quest in a thought-provoking imaginary fantasy setting with safety swords and play-acting. It's an action-packed five days of imagination and fun!
