Programs for Tweens and Teens

Teen Creative Writing Studio
Creative Writing Studio will give students (Grades 6-12) an overview of several writing genres including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and scriptwriting. In class, we will spend the first 45 minutes reviewing our previous week’s writing and workshopping pieces with one another. The second hour of the class is dedicated to learning a new writing skill and building upon what we learned in previous weeks. Students will be expected to write outside of class in order to be able to take full advantage of workshopping! We will explore several types of writing in this fun, fast-paced program, so there is truly something for everyone! All writing supplies will be provided.
Each program will be held at the library (outdoors). Should there be inclement weather, the program will move to a Zoom platform. Registering once will register you for all sessions.

June 15 (introductory writing/free write), June 22 (flash fiction writing), June 29 (long fiction writing), July 6 (humor writing), July 13 (memoir writing), July 20 (interview writing), July 27 (poetry writing), August 3 (scriptwriting), August 10 (final writing project), August 17 (writing showcase)

This program is made possible through the generous sponsorship of the Baldwin Whitehall Friends of the Theater Arts.
