Laugh Out Loud Literary Devices

Feedback form is now closed.
We all know the serious side of creative writing, but what about the lighter side of the literary arts? This workshop will hit the funny bone of disengaged students with laugh out loud examples of personification, simile, metaphor, hyperbole, and more! Then we'll look at some activities that allow students to practice these devices, and produce beautiful or hilarious results. Regardless of the outcome, it will be seriously good writing!
