The Writer’s Studio

There is nothing better than the feeling you get after creating a truly personal, heartfelt, and inspiring poem or story (except maybe rescuing someone from a burning building!) Whether you are an experienced writer or simply looking to try creative writing for the first time, this class is for you. Explore poetry and fiction writing in this exciting writer’s workshop. Led by a team of talented and passionate writers, students will be encouraged to seek out individual wellsprings of creativity, and to transform them into vibrant poems and short stories. Through class discussions and analysis of various authors, we will identify and discuss the hallmarks of great writing, and learn how to cultivate these creative strategies in our own work.  The program will culminate in an open mic where students have the opportunity to showcase their work. Friends and family are invited to attend.

9:00 AM-12:00 PM: Poetry

12:30 PM-3:00 PM: Fiction

Participants must bring the following item(s):

  • Journal
  • Pencils

This program will be led by Anthony Herman.

Anthony Herman is an English Teacher at Episcopal Academy.  He attended Franklin and Marshall, where he earned his BA in English Literature.  He then received his MA in English Literature from Columbia University.  Aside from teaching, Mr. Herman also coaches cross country, basketball, and track and field.  Mr. Herman enjoys playing basketball and writing poetry in his free time.  For him, the Writer’s Studio will revolve around learning about new poets and authors and imitating their style and tone in order to create one’s own voice.  In addition, a great deal of time will be spent on writing and workshopping drafts of poems and short fiction, eventually honing in on final pieces one can be proud of (and read aloud to family and friends!). If you want to hear new voices and improve your creative writing ability, this class is for you!
