The New-York Historical Society and the DiMenna Children’s History Museum are proud to host a young writers workshop in partnership with Writopia Lab, a nationally recognized non-profit organization that has led workshops for kids ages 8 to 18 since 2007. This unique Historical Fiction Writing workshop will be co-facilitated by a New-York Historical Society educator, who will introduce the writers to many different themes related to the Civil War. They will be presented with artifacts on display from that era and invited into the museum library to view documents, maps and letters from the collection not currently on display. These rich resources and experienced educators will help these young writers grow their ideas into stories.
There is a very limited number of spaces in order to keep the student to educator ratio low. To register or for more information, please call (212) 873-3400 ext. 374.
