We’ll listen to the classic tale, Gift of the Magi and use fun writing prompts to get you thinking about
your own story ideas! If you’re working on a story that you would like to have critiqued, please bring it
to the session for author Stacy Post to review. Limit is one short story per person with a 2,000 word max.

"Senior year. And then life. Maybe that's the way it worked. High school was just a prologue to the real novel.
Everybody got to write you -- but when you graduated, you got to write yourself. At graduation you got to collect your teacher's pens and your parents' pens and you got your own pen. And you could do all the writing."
-Benjamin Alire Sáenz, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
