About this event
1 hour 30 minutes

In this workshop, young authors will be asked to imagine a city: it could be the city you grew up in or a made-up city. This city and its people are facing a problem. But you are the one who can help solve it. You possess a unique superpower that will transform and solve this problem. What is the problem and the superpower? Through the process of the workshop, the problem and the answer will be revealed, and you’ll discover the hero in YOU.

About the Workshop Series

At The Wren’s Nest, our mission is to cultivate the next generation of writers and readers by championing the power of using your voice to tell your story. Our Scribes writing workshops for middle-grade writers (grades 5-8) are led by professional local writers, and each explores a unique topic, from writing basics to journalism to poetry.

These in-person workshops are open to middle-grade students in Georgia. Spaces are limited, and admission will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. For each workshop, a $10 registration fee includes workshop attendance, museum admission, a notebook and writing utensil, and light refreshments.

This Scribes Youth Writing Workshop is made possible by the Gable Foundation.

The Wren’s Nest is supported in part by the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, and the Georgia Council for the Arts through appropriations of the Georgia General Assembly. Georgia Council for the Arts also receives support from its partner agency - the National Endowment for the Arts.
