Superhero Writing for Teens
So you want to write about superheroes?
It used to be comics or bust if you wanted to tell superhero stories. But things have changed, and for writers with superheroes on the mind, this is a change for the better. Authors, screenwriters, and artists all have many more options than ever before to tell their tales—what type of storyteller are you?
On Wednesday, February 18 from 1 to 5PM at the Woburn Public Library, Matthew Phillion, author of the Indestructibles series of Young Adult superhero novels, will share his experience writing for the genre while going over what sorts of options are available for aspiring writers to create super-stories. He will help writers learn what opportunities they have, which style might be best for them, and how to find the right collaborators to bring their stories to life. Attendees are encouraged to bring samples of their superhero writing with them.
This 4-hour intensive workshop is open to teens in grades 6 through 12. Interested? To register, please call 781-933-0148 or visit the Reference Desk. Refreshments will be served. Handicapped access can be arranged by calling 781-933-0148. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Woburn Public Library.
