Writer's Block: "Show. Don't Tell."

I’m excited to share the video of our first Writer’s Block of 2020! This creative writing club is designed for young writers, but writers of all ages and experience levels are welcome.

“Show. Don’t Tell.” It’s a critique writers often receive, so how do we “show” and “not tell” in our writing? We’ll talk about how to write vividly using sensory descriptions and avoid some “telling” words that tend to slow down our writing. As always, there’s a writing activity at the end.

“Show. Don’t Tell.” It’s a common writing critique writers can learn to overcome. #WritersBlock #writingcommunity

The Challenge to Write Simply

Welcome back to Writer’s Block, a creative writing club designed for young writers. In this month’s meeting, we talk about how less can definitely be more with our writing, but writing simply is much harder than we might think!

In today’s video, we talk about ways to write tightly and clear. The writing activity is one you won’t want to miss.
