We've been posting a variety of writing prompts and contests throughout the last year, from 100 Word Stories, to the Write Global Essay Contest. Another creative writing event coming up soon is Salt Lake Teens Write, a workshop for teens, led by the Salt Lake Community College Community Writing Center.
The Community Writing Center, or CWC, is located downtown on Library Square, in the plaza outside of the Main Library. The CWC offers a variety of resources for the whole community. That's right, you don't have to be a student of SLCC to use their services! The best part, especially for teens, is that their one-on-one coaching and teen writing workshops are FREE.
The next Salt Lake Teens Write event is coming up in March. SLTW is a three week workshop where teens will meet with writing mentors, and each other, twice a week to develop their skills and passion for creative writing. The theme for the March 2022 workshop is Making it Personal. This session will focus on personal writing, including journaling, poetry, memoir, college essay writing, writing for social justice, and more. The workshop runs March 8-25 on Tuesdays and Thursdays and you do need to register to participate. Visit the CWC Teens Write page for more details and a link to the application.
Each Teens Write workshop features a different theme, so if you can't make it this Spring, stay tuned for details about the upcoming summer and fall 2022 sessions.
You can also checkout writing from the last Salt Lake Teens Write Anthology here. The next anthology will be compiled in November 2022, so it's not too late to submit your own work.
