Teen Writers enjoy all conference activities, including:
Friday, September 29
Burn the Bully with Jay Asher
TIME: 6:00 - 6:30 pm
LOCATION: Cuesta College TBD
Exclusive Teen Session - "Great Depression Haiku"
The Teens will create poems based on Dorothea Lange photographs. Haiku is such great discipline for writers (so is writing headlines) but the rules are so clear that it's not that daunting for them. The teens will see a series of images and pick three to write about. The best poems were about human interactions.
They will be mentored by Mr. Jim Gregory, a local retired historian and author. Jim Gregory’s specialty is local history, especially the history of southern San Luis Obispo County.
TIME: 6:30 - 9:30 pm
LOCATION: Cuesta College Room 7120
Saturday, September 30
On Saturday, teens will attend any of the 40 workshops. Teens and their mentors will gather at lunch to answer questions and make sure everyone is getting what they need from the program.
TIMES: 9:00am – 5:00 pm Choose from 40 professional writing workshops. (Includes a lunch with an author)
LOCATION: Cuesta College Campus (rooms vary)
