Young Creators Masterclass with Carrie Snyder

Balsillie School of International Arts
Room #1-32

Join Carrie Snyder for a writing adventure, a workshop that invites you to write fiction using a variety of imaginative techniques, loosely based on the teachings of Lynda Barry, who asks us to consider “the perishable images about the day you didn’t notice you’d noticed at all.” All you need is a notebook and a black pen. Come prepared to write and sketch by hand. For writers aged 13 to 17.
