From Paper to Screen: A Workshop on Digital Storytelling


This hands-on multimedia workshop is geared toward students navigating our dynamic and increasingly technological world. We will explore creative writing genres in online and multimedia formats, and use apps and online platforms to bring your original writing to the screen. No prior experience with technology is necessary, as our professional instructors will work together with you on the basics of audio and film editing to translate your stories, essays, films, and poetry into digital form. You will need to bring your own laptop or tablet.
