Spells Writing Lab has become a crime scene—can you help us solve this whodunit? Our junior detectives will experiment with forensic science and other investigative techniques as we learn about the elements of a good mystery story, from creating strong characters to revealing clues. How will the mystery end?

Registration is free, but requires a refundable deposit of $25 via credit card, PayPal, check, or cash. The registration will not be valid until the deposit has been received by Spells Writing Lab.

Dr. Spells and his malfunctioning time machine are stuck bouncing around the time-space continuum, and we have to save him! We’ll “visit” a wide variety of times & places—including a real trip to the Penn Museum—and use these flights of fancy to inspire time-travel graphic novels and other temporal-themed stories.

Registration is free, but requires a refundable deposit of $25 via credit card, PayPal, check, or cash. The registration will not be valid until the deposit has been received by Spells Writing Lab.
