Landlubbers' Literacy Night
Ahoy, readers! This family-friendly virtual program begins with an introduction and rousing readaloud of Goldenlocks and the Three Pirates, followed by a behind-the-scenes look at how picture books are made and how authors young and old can use wordplay to make their writing sizzle. I'll share nuggets of wisdom about the writing process, including how authors get ideas, have fun with research, and revise, revise, revise to make our stories as ship-shape as possible. I'll also encourage young writers to try their hands at writing their own fractured fairy tales at home.
Depending on our meeting platform and setup, I'll interact with families via video or the chat feature, soliciting ideas and questions from participants. Extension activities and writing resources included. Grab yer hardtack and yer favorite pirate garb, and let's get down to the bones of writing!
