Girls With Pens is coming to Washington, D.C.!

Young adult author Carolyn Cohagan is offering a FREE Girls With Pens workshop at Potter’s House Bookstore on April 28th as part of the launch of her new novel Time Next. The workshop is open to girls 8-16.

During the one and a half hour workshop, Carolyn will discuss the fundamentals of storytelling. The girls will share their favorite books and movies as they dissect what makes a compelling plot. They will come up with our own characters, settings, and conflicts, and then write and share their work.



Carolyn Cohagan began her writing career on the stage. She has performed stand-up and one-woman shows at festivals around the world from Adelaide to Edinburgh. Her first novel, The Lost Children, became part of the Scholastic Book Club in 2011 and was nominated for a 2014 Massachusetts Children's Book Award. Her Young Adult novel Time Zero was the winner of the 2017 Readers Favorite Award and the 2017 International Book Award. She lives in Austin, TX, where she is the founder of Girls With Pens, a creative writing organization dedicated to fostering the individual voices and offbeat imaginations of girls ages 8-16.
