Creative Writing: Pandemic Fiction

Creative Writing: Pandemic Fiction

Ages 12-18

The world over, people are changing the way they move through their lives, and the way they think. We all know this period of deep change will mark us forever. It is hard to think about, or write about a crisis from the center of it. But we can use this extraordinary moment as a diving board into imaginary worlds we might never have had the courage to discover before. What is it like to be a large family who lose their home? Or a protester who lands in jail? Or an elderly widow who’s best friend is a cat? Or a band of kids who secretly ride their skateboards at night delivering food to the hungry?

We will write a short story, (or possibly stories). Each class will open with a discussion and move into writing prompts and exercises. We will read aloud and learn what is working in our favor and what isn’t. When the story is finished you will staple it into a booklet, or print a few copies for a zine. Drawings might accompany the words, or not. Whatever form the story takes, the result will be a slice of this period, something to find in a drawer weeks, months, or years from now.
