Youth Writers Workshop

Time: 1-4 p.m.
Cost: $6 per youth attending, includes museum admission for the day

Would you like to write a story for the Write Out of This World contest? MoPOP is excited to partner with The Fairwood Writers group and Norwescon to kick off the call for submissions for its 2018 Write Out of This World contest by offering a special event to help students. Professional science fiction and fantasy writer coaches will help young writers in grades 3rd-5th, 6th-8th, and 9th-12th develop ideas for a strange world, an adventurous hero or heroine to explore it, and the problems this character has to overcome. Drawing inspiration from a tour of MoPop’s Infinite Worlds of Science Fiction, participants will brainstorm, try out ideas, get fueled and ready to launch a terrific story for the contest. Plan to dream big and learn about the elements of science fiction and fantasy storytelling in this workshop for serious young writers!

Parents/guardians may purchase additional tickets to tour the museum at our reduced education rate of $6 per person, or relax in the museum’s café for the duration of the workshop free of charge.
