creativewritingIs there something you are longing to write just for yourself? Is it hard to find the time for personal projects inside a busy school schedule? Here’s the chance to dedicate a few afternoons to tap into your natural creative writing style using language, sounds, and rhythms that are true to you. Learn how to take your idea to finished stories, poetry, lyrics—whatever interests you. Learn how to give and receive encouragement through critique in a community of writers who share your passion. Come write about what matters to you. No grades—I promise!

Madison resident Leslie Connor is an award-winning author of several books for young adults, including All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook, Waiting for Normal and Crunch.

Please plan to attend all four sessions. This is the third session. Wednesdays, October 4, 11, 18 and 25. Free and open to all students in grades 7 to 12. Please register.
