Are you an aspiring writer? Have you ever thought about getting into writing, but don’t know where to start? Have you ever noticed a small detail of the world and thought about it all day? Have you ever felt your heart full of voices and dreams just begging for you to express them? Then, join our Teen Creative Writing Circle! Hosted by the Greater Olney Branch. For ages 12 through 18.
How it works:
Every Wednesday, starting July 29th, we’ll post a writing prompt, and some writing samples, on our Facebook Greater Olney Branch and Instagram Greater Olney Library. You get a week to write something in response to the prompt.
Each Tuesday in August, at 3pm, we’ll have a face-to-face virtual meeting where you can share what you wrote with other members of the writing circle; and listen to other’s works. By sharing with each other, we can support, encourage, and inspire each other.
At the end of the program, you can send us your favorite thing you wrote this summer, and we’ll include it in a display outside the library for the public to read. Participants will also receive a virtual zine compiling the works from the display. When we reopen, you’ll find a printed copy in the collection here at the Greater Olney Branch!
**Up to four community service hours are available through this program, for those with community service hour requirements at their schools. Just make sure to ask.**
