Start Writing, Keep Writing: A Writing Workshop for Teens at Whiting Library

posted Wednesday, October 13, 2021

High school students with an interest in creative writing are invited to attend a Teen Writers Workshop at Whiting Library on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. at 117 Main Street in Chester. Whiting Library is hosting this writer's workshop for youth in grades 9 through 12. Do you write for fun or want to start? This workshop is for you!

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 [email protected] A minimum number of four participants is required for this workshop to run.
