Silver Spring Teen Writers’ Club starts /Sept, 10.

Metro Brief

On September 7, 2015

Teens in the Silver Spring area who like to write fiction, nonfiction or poetry will have a chance to develop their writing voices and skills through a new Teen Writers’ Club at the Silver Spring Library, 900 Wayne Avenue. 

The club will feature workshops for teen writers, ages 13-18, and will meet twice a month on alternate Thursdays, beginning September 10 at 6:30 p.m., in the large meeting room 2 on the 3rd floor. 

The club will offer writing exercises and group discussions that will help teens improve their writing and try new approaches. There will be constructive feedback on writing samples and advice on how to overcome obstacles. Members will also be able to:

  • Discuss how to get started on a project, including how to turn an idea into a story or poem, how to make a plan, and how to stick to it;
  • Learn how to develop characters, set the scene, and keep a story going with a plot that keeps readers engaged;
  • Learn how to revise work;
  • Share skill and participate in critiques;
  • Learn how to read as a writer to understand the techniques of favorite authors;
  • Hear and meet guest writers

The Teen Writers’ Club is co-sponsored by the Montgomery County Library System and the Maryland Writers’ Association
