A mix of free-writing and sharing, the workshop will develop writing skills and practices in a supportive and welcoming environment. Participants should bring a notebook and a written piece they are currently working on, or planning to start. Teen writers of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry are invited to attend.
“The Teen Writing Workshop is a chance for young writers to develop their voice in a fun and low-key environment. Being around other people who like to write can be really motivating and encourage your creative process. Don’t be shy—sign up!” said Rosamund Conroy, the workshop instructor. Ms. Conroy is a Whiting Library Trustee, writer and former director of Summer Ink, a youth writing program.
Young writers may choose to submit a piece to the Vermont High School Writing Contest following the workshop. Register by contacting Carrie King, Youth Librarian, by 11/3/21 for this free workshop by calling the library at 875-2277 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. A minimum number of four participants is required for this workshop to run.
