Hi! I'm Livia Blackburne, author of the NY Times bestselling young adult novel Midnight Thief. In July of 2015, I ran a week long creative writing camp for middle and high school students. We had a ton of fun, and the students wrote some great short stories and novellas! After the camp, I revised my materials and expanded them for other teachers to use.

Lesson one is a bird's eye view of storytelling. Why do we tell stories in the first place? What makes a good story? How do you become a better writer? This presentation uses several well known stories to discuss plot, character, and writing, with the objective of encouraging students to think about stories in a more analytical and intentional way.
