On-site: Teen Writing Café
August 8 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
For teens in Grades 8-12.
Need a quiet place to write? Do you work better in the company of others? Every Monday from 3:00-4:00 pm, come write together! We’ll have a dedicated space to be productive in. You can keep working on any project or ask for a prompt to get you started. Brain fuel provided. Cafes on 7/11, 7/18, 7/25, 8/1, 8/8, 8/15, 8/22.
Also, every other Tuesday from 3:00-5:30 pm, join Tyler Allen Penny for a supportive and fun creative writing group. Learn about free writing, character development, poetry, plays & screen plays, plotting a story, and even structuring a novel. You’ll get a chance to share your work as well as offer feedback to your peers. Snacks, of course! Meetings on 6/28, 7/12, 7/26, 8/9, 8/16 (meet from 2:00-4:00 on 8/16).
These workshops are underwritten by generous donations from the friends of Jeanette Sarkisian Wagner, a long-time advocate of youth literacy programs.
