    Parents, are you raising the next literary genius? If your offspring has a way with words and/or needs to polish their skills (or you just need them out of the house for a couple of hours!), check out Badgerdog’s upcoming 2nd Saturday Writing Sessions, a series of workshops for 4th-12th graders which will be held right here at WriteByNight HQ.

    Each session will focus on a specific theme and age group, and will be held on the second Saturday of each month between August and December. The first workshop is slated for August 13th. Called “The Magic of Myths,” this session, aimed at 4th and 5th grade writers, will explore what makes mythical tales so appealing and will help students find the inspiration to write their own.

    September’s “Writing the Personal” will teach high-schoolers the art of creative nonfiction and help them craft those pesky college essays.

    Other sessions will cover exciting topics like horror films and gothic themes, creatures and characters, and graphic stories, and each workshop will be led by one of Badgerdog’s expert writing instructors.

    For more details on 2nd Saturdays, visit the Badgerdog website.

    Based in Austin, Badgerdog Literary Publishing runs programming intended to develop the skills of writers of all ages. They also publish American Short Fiction, one of the most highly-regarded literary magazines in the nation. WBN is excited to be joining forces with them for this series of workshops, which is sure to prove both an educational and fun experience for young local writers.

    Badgerdog is also taking donations, so if you have $5 to spare, please visit this page and help them continue to provide the best in Austin writing classes.
