Junior High is a Nightmare: Writing the Teen Self

Grab your Pee Chee folders and glitter pens to spend time in homeroom once more to write about those precious teenage years. While no one wants to repeat those awkward moments, we get to explore them in our writing. The mortifying, the funny, the sweet. In this 2-hour generative writing workshop, we’ll revisit coming of age milestones that our adult-selves can now see with compassion.

What Participants Will Take Away

  • Read multi-genre excerpts as examples.
  • Discuss how writers examine those awkward teen years in literature.
  • Write with guided prompts inspired by the pieces, with an option to share in a safe space.


Saturday, October 7, 2023: 7 AM PDT / 10 AM EDT / 3 PM BST / 7:30 PM IST
