WRITING WORKSHOP FOR MS STUDENTS 給國中生的寫作工作坊
Middle schoolers: do you have an idea that you know would make a good story but you’re not sure what to do with it?  Have you secretly dreamed of writing a book but don’t know where to start?  Are you considering participating in National Novel Writing Month this November and want to make sure you’re ready?

 From 2:00-5:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 17th, Mrs. Lima is offering a workshop on how to organize your story ideas, develop your characters, and prepare to begin drafting a novel.  You will come away with a structured, sequenced plot and a cast of characters ready to populate the pages of your new masterpiece. 

The cost is 200 NT and includes course materials and refreshments. (You will also need to purchase two inexpensive ebooks before the class.) Email Mrs. Lima at limaa@mca.org.tw no later than October 15th for more information or to sign up. Note: this workshop is for middle schoolers only.
給國中生們:是不是在你的腦中曾想像過一些創意十足的點子覺得這肯定能發展出一個有趣的故事卻猶豫不確定這樣的思路對不對? 你是否曾幻想過自己能寫出一本書但卻苦惱不知該如何下手呢?你有考慮參加11月國際小說寫作月的創作嗎?

好消息是,從10/17開始每週六下午2點到5點,Mrs. Lima將開班寫作的工作坊,內容將涵蓋如何整理你的故事創意,如何發展故事情節人物,以及寫出小說的草稿。你將會學到如何組織故事的架構和發產人物情節的走向,讓你的故事能成為扣人心弦的作品。 

此工作坊的費用為200元,包含課程資料和小點心(參加工作坊另需要夠買兩本價格不高的電子書)。想參與工作坊的學生請務必在10/15前報名或email Mrs. Lima: limaa@mca.org.tw 此工作坊只限定給國中生喔。
