FREE Young Writers Workshop

Saturday, December 10, 2011 / 1:30 pm


Participate in a FREE Young Writers Workshop at the Bay View Public Library, 2566 S. Kinnickinnic, Milwaukee at 1:30 PM on December 10. The one-hour workshop for children grades 1-3, their parents, caregivers and teachers, focuses on the basic process of creating an illustrated story.

Presented by Milwaukee Public Television's Community Relations Manager, Darlyne Haertlein, children will be encouraged to create a story of their own at home and enter it in MPTV's eighteenth annual writing contest.

Active discussion will help participants identify elements of story and illustration that make up a "best book." Guidelines for entering stories in the contest will also be reviewed.

Due to space limitations, participants (children and adults) must be registered. The phone number to register for the workshop is (414) 286-3011.

(The MPTV Writers Contest deadline for entries is March 5, 2012.)
