Speaker Spotlight: Carol Federlin Baldwin, Teen Track “Fiction Writing”
Carol Baldwin, author of Teaching the Story: Fiction Writing in Grades 4–8, will lead Teen Track participants at Write2Ignite 2018 through exercises including movement activities and writing practice after helping them gather some basic tools to put into their writing toolbox:
- Muscle Words
- Show, Don’t Tell
- The Red Pencil Is Your Best Friend
- Using Mentor Texts
- Details Make the Difference (genre fiction)
Carol will show how these writing tools can be used to craft original characters and sensory settings and how a character’s conflicts drive the plot of a story.
