Heroes and heroines show up in all forms of literature and popular culture. Katniss Everdeen, Ulysses, Luke Skywalker, Frodo Baggins, Mulan, and Harry Potter all take journeys on their path to hero status. In this week-long seminar and workshop, a published author from Writers in the Schools (WITS) will help you examine this genre of writing and explore what makes a hero and their journey successful. Who do they meet along the way? What challenges do they face? You will look at historical heroes and, with your instructor’s guidance, create your own hero or heroine, develop their character traits, and design their journey. You’ll leave the workshop with an epic poem, graphic novel, or short story about your hero and their epic journey.
