Teen SRG: Creative Writing Workshop

Are you a middle or high schooler looking for a welcoming new place to foster your writing? Or maybe some help practicing your writing skills in a fun way? This summer, join Teen Librarian Amelia, for a 7 week creative writing course!

Each week we will work on a different element of storytelling (description, character development, story arcs, tone, etc.) By the end of the 7 weeks, each teen will have completed a Zine to share with their family and friends!! There are so many benefits to developing a love for writing - confidence, expression, self-identity, creativity, imagination, open-mindedness, communication, and of course, literacy! 

Please Note: When registering for this course, you are signing up for all of the classes! It's strongly recommended to attend all 7 classes!  If you are unable to attend all of the classes, please contact Amelia, abuccarelli@wlsmail.org

Registration required to receive Zoom ID and Password.
