Join the Environmental Volunteers and teen author Sophia Qin for a creative writing workshop for aspiring teen writers. Using examples from Sophia’s own published book, Becoming Earth 2.0, participants will learn how they can advocate for the environment through writing. This workshop will explore how the setting, characters, and conflict of a nonfiction story can help address environmental issues and inspire readers.
