April Virtual Teen Writer’s Block

Wednesday April 29th, 4:00-5:00 PM. Open to teens in Grades 7-12. This meeting will be held via Google Meet.

Sign up required. Registered teens will get a link to the Google Meet the morning of April 29th.

It’s been a strange couple of months for all of us. Luckily, we can all get out of the house now…virtually! Let’s get together online and talk about some of the most unusual story settings we’ve ever thought up or read. Distant galaxies! Far-flung fantasy kingdoms! Dark futuristic dystopias! Australia! 😉  (Sorry Australians, no offense meant…)
If you have a short piece of work that you want to share, and which gives us a window to one of your worlds, bring it along!
This group is for teen writers looking to find other teens with the same interest. Juliana Spink Mills, a wonderfully talented  local science-fiction and fantasy author runs this group.

December Teen Writer’s Block is sharing and feedback!

When: Wednesday 16th, time 4:00-5:00 PM

This group is for teen writers looking to find other teens with the same interest. This group will be run by Juliana Spink Mills, a wonderful local science fiction and fantasy author.
This month will be  FAIRY TALES & RETELLINGS!

So, if you’d like to share, bring a page or a scene to read to the group this month. 
If you are looking for something new to write about, try the flash fiction exercise. How to do it: make a list of six literary genres (like realistic, fantasy) and six random themes (like chickens or umbrellas — ask your friends or family for fun ideas!), and then roll the dice to select one of each. Try a few of these, and then pick your favorite to bring in December.
