Thursdays: July 6, 13,20,27
Teens are invited to meet at the library each Thursday in July for writing fun. Each week, library staff or a special guest will present and lead a writing exercise on a specific theme or writing form. Bring your pencils and paper, a computer, or even a typewriter to this fun writing program. Sharing is encouraged, and there will be snacks!
July 6: Inspired by Art. Explore some famous and not-so-famous art, designs, or pictures and write stories, poetry, or songs inspired by them.
July 13: Script Writing. Exercise your writing muscles by writing a puppet script. We’ll have computers on hand for printing out props and puppets to test out the resulting plays.
July 20: Fan Fiction. Write something inspired by your favorite book, movie, or TV series. We’ll also talk about how copyright works into the matter. It’s not theft; it’s borrowing! Or is it?
July 27: Comics, Manga, and Graphic Novels. Calling both writers and artists: join us and a special guest to learn about the unique requirements for writing for artwork and illustrating for words.
Please register for any or all sessions.
