I was invited to present a workshop at the Junior Author’s Writing Conference  this past weekend. The conference was  well-organized by the amazing Laura Thomas (Read my blog about her here) Over 70 aspiring authors from ages 9 to 18 attended,  all eager to learn more about writing. I had a wonderful time presenting a description workshop called “Writing More Than You See”

This was the blurb on the agenda:

Writing More Than You See with Darlene Foster, Author

This workshop is about setting and how pictures can be used to write a scene. The importance of using more than the sense of sight to describe setting will be explored. Participants will practice descriptive writing by observing a picture of a place and describing it using more than one sense.  This will be a fun, interactive workshop with an opportunity to share writing with other participants and learn from each other.

It was indeed fun. The participants seemed to enjoy the hands-on writing practice and got right into it. Some shared what they wrote and I was amazed at what they created in such a short time. They are serious writers of the future.

It was so wonderful to be in a room full of young people working toward their dream of becoming writers. The creative energy was contagious. I wish them all the best in their writing endeavours. Thank you Laura for organizing this event and for inviting me to be part of it.
