Plan ahead for the summer with this writing lab for teens

Summertime means vacation, and that means finding activities to keep your kids busy. Explore your child’s other interests and even cultivate his creativity. Inject educational activities to his summer schedule like “The Write Stuff: A Writing Lab for Teens” on April 1, 2017, Saturday, 1:00 to 5:00PM in Fully Booked, Bonifacio Global City.

Facilitating the workshop will be Ana P. Santos and Nikka Sarthou-Lainez of Writer’s Block Philippines, an organization dedicated to empowering writers, communicators, and creative entrepreneurs.

“Aside from our typical freelance writing events, we also host a workshop for teens every summer season. We’d like to develop childrens’ interest and passion for writing at an early age. In this half-day activity, we’ll be sharing tips and techniques on how to discover your writer’s voice,” shares Santos, a journalist who focuses on women and gender issues.

Santos is a regular columnist in Rappler and Working Mom and as the 2014 Persephone Miel Fellow for the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, her work has been published in The Atlantic and The Washington Post.

“What’s unique about this workshop is the way we’ll ask participants to create stories using Talecraft, a story-creation card game. It’s a fun way to learn writing! As long as your teen has an interest in either reading or writing—and is between 13 to 18 years old—he can join the event,” says Sarthou-Lainez, a lifestyle writer who was chosen as one of the five Asian representatives for Moleskine’s Modern Nomads in 2012.

Talecraft Founder, Ria Lu, will be there to help the young writers break out of mental block and create stories with genres and characters that are outside of what they usually like to create. Participants will get to bring home their own set of Talecraft cards.
