Once Upon a Time, YOU Wrote a BOOK!

Doing something BIG like writing a book can be daunting, but it’s totally doable when you break it up into fun little pieces. We’ll collect story elements and then talk about how to bring them all together to make a page-turning, shelf-worthy book!

This Talkabook visit is for one (1) young writer. For small groups of writers, please click here.

Your young writer will complete activities and collect badges as they create seeds for their character, setting, and story arc.

Then we'll talk about how to bring all the pieces together into a polished book.

  • For new/younger writers, we’ll play games to help turn the pieces into paragraphs.
  • For more established writers, I’ll share my best secrets for amping up the action and making irresistible characters that their readers will want to follow to the end.

Materials needed:
📃 Storybook activity kit (provided when you register)
Something to write/draw with (pens, pencils)
