Love Harry Potter? How about writing or reading fan fiction? If both are true, then this workshop is for you! What if Harry never played Quidditch? What if Draco was never in control of the Elder Wand? What if Snape raised Harry as his own son? Sometimes, a change in plot or character development can create an entirely different story. This week will take you through the creative writing process by brainstorming some fun and exciting ideas and alternate endings to famous Harry Potter moments. Each day will focus on a different “BIG moment” or two from the Harry Potter novels and contain a writer’s workshop to work on your fan fictions. While we read and create our stories, we will watch and discuss some clips from the movies and read snippets from the books to see how your fan fiction relates to what really happened. We will also participate in online Harry Potter games, contests, Book/ Movie trivia, and publish your fan fiction stories at the end of the week! Grab your broomstick and a cup of pumpkin juice from Diagon Alley and enjoy all things Harry Potter!
