Every town is a hometown.

The Hometown Stories international writing project can take place across five weekly workshops or during one amazingly creative, intensive week of creative writing and art-making for your students or community group.

Each project is led by a Blue Planet teaching writer with extensive experience in leading creative writing workshops for students and adults. Inspired by guiding questions, writing prompts, and individual interactions, participants will write a memoir-based piece about their hometown. They’ll learn to revise and shape their work for publication, and then they’ll see their tales published on a dedicated Hometown Stories page on Blue Planet’s website. Each Hometown Stories project includes:

  • 5 two-hour workshops
  • A highly experienced teaching writer to lead the workshops
  • Publication of all stories on the Hometown Stories online gallery
  • An author reading by your group; invite family and friends!
  • All materials used in the project
