You leave the Adding Intrigue workshop, and head to the fourth door: 'Week 4: Finishing Touches'.
As you walk in, the smell of salt and seaweed fills your nose - and you realise there is soft sand underfoot. From the shade of some palm trees, three girls wave to you.
"Hey! I'm Summer, from Non-Fi!" says the first; she wears a large sunhat, and has seemingly insisted on bringing her chess set to the 'beach'.
"And I'm Zura! I lead Adventure!"
"And I'm Li! I'm a co-host, and co-leader of Classics." She smiles, and gestures towards a row of stripy deckchairs. "Take your seat - the Finishing Touches workshop is about to begin!"
What are Workshops?
Workshops are a focal part of the activities of SWC, meant to encourage quality over quantity and get us all to improve our writing! Many of the weeklies + dailies will be reliant on these workshops, so make sure to check them out.
- 1 workshop a week
- 3 lessons, or 'subtopics', a week
- Studios for the workshops made by the hosts
- leader of the subtopic makes project/forum and sets campers an activity based around the subtopic
