Starting with small group collaborations of improvisational writerly play (theater games), students grades 4 to 8 will scaffold into character exploration creating a dramatic sketch, by focusing on problem solving through plot building and resolution. These activities culminate into an informal sharing of our stories, using the puppets and props provided. Participants will get to meet new people, take home their writing, and learn about more opportunities for young writers and actors at Mesner Puppet Theater and Society of Young Inklings.
