Teen Writers' Studio

Do you love making up stories, poems or dreaming about writing a novel one day? Do you want to meet other teens who share the same passion? Join us for an informal session where you can meet other writers, do a few exercises, talk about how to improve your work and bounce ideas off each other. You will never be required to share your work, but if you'd like to, this is a safe space and judgment free zone. Your stories and poems produced during these sessions will also be bound together at the end of the school year, creating a book or zine of your work. Open to all middle and high school students.
