Build a Story Brick By Brick

What’s your story? How are you going to tell it? Tell it brick by brick. Think of writing like building wall, one brick at a time and very soon, you will have something. Brick by Brick is a writing club for middle schoolers. We collaborate to tell a story brick by brick. We will meet weekly, for and hour or two at a time. We determine the meeting time and place. Ellen Eigner, the facilitator, is a guide only. The group will determine the subject matter and format. We will write a book together to be published upon its completion. If you like to write, if you like to collaborate with others, if you get excited about telling a story, you should really join us. (Tuition is $75, but financial assistance is available)
