Tweens and magazines

Magazine professional Carey Field of Wilton will lead a two-week writing enrichment workshop, Magazine Mavens©, for rising sixth to eight graders in July through the Greenwich Education Group in New Canaan.

Students will have the opportunity to create a magazine about New Canaan events, activities, stories and personalities of interest to teens. The workshop will enable students to get involved in every step of the magazine process, from developing story ideas, to writing and editing articles on topics that interest them, to taking photographs and assisting with layout. On the last day of the workshop, students will present their printed magazine to the president of the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce at a magazine “launch party.”

The workshop will be offered in two sessions, to be held at Greenwich Education Group, 62 Main Street, New Canaan from 10 to noon. Session 1 runs from Monday, July 7 to Friday, July 18; Session 2 runs from Monday, July 21 to Friday, Aug. 1. Space is limited to 10 students per session. Students should bring either a laptop or iPad to the workshop. The cost per session is $300 per student.
