We have moved our meetup workshop to Sunday, January 26 so that we can bring in a special guest instructor.

She has produced and directed documentaries in Hawaii, Wyoming, South Dakota, Europe, and Antarctica. She currently consults with screenwriters and businesses in research and Internet platform development, creating videos and online courses for their clients.
Joy will share ways to create Unexpected Plot Twists and Turns for our own stories! This workshop is complimentary, so RSVP “Yes!” today for your son or daughter. We have just 12 seats available.

Shu-Hsien & Royd
Writing Coaches Shu-Hsien Ho and Royd Hatta are passionate about teaching youth and teens how to organize their thoughts and write with power, clarity and ease. Since 1996, their students have learned to write essays, research reports, poems, short stories, and even their first novels. After working with Ms. Ho, one teen writer independently published her 400-page fantasy novel. Their students have gotten accepted into top colleges and universities, such as Mount Holyoke College, UC San Diego, Carnegie Mellon, Caltech, MIT, NYU, and Brown University. Ms. Ho has a B.A. from Pomona College and an M.A. from Lesley University. Mr. Hatta has a B.A. from the California State University at Long Beach, with specialties in history, art, theater, and philosophy. Ms. Ho and Mr. Hatta currently teach small group workshops for homeschooling groups and at the Chinese American International School in San Francisco. They run two thriving writers clubs with over 400 families: Bay Area Young Writers and Bay Area Teen Writers. In the last two years, Ms. Ho and Mr. Hatta published four anthologies of their students’ fiction: Strokes of Lightning, Real Heroes Wear Sneakers, Bones of Mystery, and Encroaching Ink.
