Virtual Teen Writing Workshops: June + July 2020

For the last four years, I have been holding Teen Writing Workshops in Paris. From 1-day seminars to 5-day fully-immersive writing workshops, I have welcomed English-speaking teens in France to learn, create and write with me.

And now, for the first time, I am thrilled to announce my first virtual workshops – held via Zoom.
