Some people might scoff at those of us who've already started decorating for Halloween, but those that love the season know it's always a good time for a little (or more than a little) spookiness. The City Library has some fun Fall activities lined up this year and the first event we want you to know about is the Fall Teens Write workshop.
This free virtual program, led by the Community Writing Center, is for teen writers interested in exploring the darker side of fiction writing. Mentors will take participants through six sessions of exploration and exercise around the horror genre, and some of the City Library's teen librarians will even participate with some fun presentations about our favorite media.
Additionally, at the end of the year, all the writing cohorts (Spring, Summer, and Fall) will come together to collaborate on an anthology publication and public reading to celebrate the different texts they have created during the year.
This Fall's workshop runs from October 5th-23rd, on Tuesdays (5-6pm) and Saturdays (11am - noon) on Zoom.
Teens in grades 9-12 are welcome to participate. Check out the CWC's Teens Write Page here for more details and to get registered.
Don't miss this chance to develop your skills and have fun with other horror-loving teen writers!
