Studio Mondays

Mondays, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
March 4 to April 8

Start your week off in the studio with focused time to generate writing. A PWN instructor will provide creative prompts and exercises to kick-start your creativity. Use this two-hour block to focus on an existing project or start a new piece. Bring your favorite writing tools or devices. Most of the session is spent composing or revising, with a portion at the end for sharing, questions, or discussion. The format of Studio Mondays is subject to change based on the instructor and style of exercises provided. However, you are welcome to reject prompts and work on your own ideas.

You may pay as you go for $25 per class or pay $130 for all six classes. If you are paying for all six classes, you must pay by March 3 to guarantee your spot for the entire session.


Tween Writing Group

Ages 11-13
Wednesdays, 5 to 6:30 p.m.
March 6 to April 10

Are you a tween who loves creative writing? Do find yourself filling pages in your notebook but aren’t sure what to do with them? This group is all about young writers like you. We focus on finding and enhancing your storytelling voice by exploring different genres and perspectives through inspirational prompts and mentor texts. We meet in a workshop setting to write and share our work, giving and receiving constructive feedback, advice, and encouragement. This is a safe, supportive environment for you to find and refine your ideas, make new friends, and even have some snacks!


Teen Writing Group

Ages 14-18
Thursdays, 5:30 to 7 p.m.
March 7 to April 11

This group is designed for teens writing novels, poetry collections, memoir, nonfiction, short story collections, or other projects, and for those about to start one. The projects may be in any stage of completion, from a handful of scenes and ideas to near-publication. We meet in a workshop setting to give and receive constructive feedback, advice, and encouragement to help each other move forward with our projects. This is a supportive environment, where everyone is ready to learn and grow from our shared missteps and triumphs in writing. Find inspirational writing prompts, new friends, feedback, food, and refreshments as you join our community of teenage writers who are not afraid to accomplish their dreams. Through plot twists, cliffhangers, and verse, we move closer to finishing, editing, and (hopefully) publishing our works.

Ages 12-18
Wednesdays, 4 to 6 p.m.
