Writing Clubs

Writing Club

Our lively and entertaining writing clubs are intended to both stretch young writers into new skill areas and create a community where they feel encouraged and respected as writers. A typical club session will include warm-up activities, a “teaching” activity, individual writing time and the opportunity for participants to share their work. Our clubs are offered FREE of charge.

This is YOUR club!

More clubs will be added, so check back often!

“It is not because I am old enough, not because I write well enough, not because I am a poet, but because I am a person my words are important.”
