Don’t miss this. We’ve partnered with Project Engage to bring you Flash Fairy Tales, a fun filled three-day workshop. Our instructors will work hands-on with students to design and create their very own fairy tale flip books. After mastering essential creative writing skills like storytelling structure and vocabulary, students will write, illustrate, and decorate their own mini-fairy tale booklets. Students will also share and present their stories, providing a chance to enhance speaking skills and socialize with their age group. Featuring passionate instructors from Project Engage, as well as national award-winning writers from Buzz Online. 

Day 1 - w/ Minnie Zhang

Guided by nationally recognized writer Minnie Zhang, students will master storytelling structure, vocabulary, and more. Students will choose a fairy tale and begin crafting their stories. 

Day 2 - w/ AnNabel Tang & Sophia Phung

It's illustration time! Instructors will guide students in creating fairy tale characters like Big Bad Wolves, beautiful princesses, and evil witches. Students will work in small Breakout Rooms to illustrate and decorate their fairy tale flip books.
