Creative Writing Club for Young Adults & Teens

Creative Writing Club for Young Adults & Teens

Visiting authors and writers venture to the Library to share their craft with Young Adults and Teens!

This week we'll meet Elizabeth Stark!

"Secrets and Surprises: Writing Stories That Intrigue"

In advance of NaNoWriMo, we'll focus on planning secrets and surprises that could be unveiled in the 30 days of writing a book, and on a micro level, writing exercises to practice doing it on a scene level.

Refreshments provided. Sign up to save your spot!
