WRITERS GROUPS FOR KIDS AND TEENS

AT BAINBRIDGE PUBLIC LIBRARY 



Young Writers Group at Bainbridge
Public Library (Grades 3-6)



Please join us for the next Young Writers Group on Tuesday, January 15! We'll take a break in December and meet up again in the new year. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 3:30 to 5 pm during the school year. 

Budding authors will write stories, novels, and poems from their own imaginations. They can also share their work aloud in the group or meet with Margaret for a 1:1 story meeting. Fun prompts - and a snack - are also on the agenda!

This is a free, drop-in group. No need to register.

This group is sponsored by Kitsap Regional Library. It's co-facilitated by authors Kathy O'Brien and Margaret Chang.

Young writers, hope to see you at Bainbridge Public Library, 1270 Madison Ave. North!

Teen Writers Workshop at Bainbridge
Public Library (Grades 7-12)



Teen Writers! Join us on Thursday, December 13 when we'll write, share tips, and have a snack. We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month during the school year from 4 to 5:30 pm.

Learn how to bring characters to life, create engaging dialogue, or build an exciting world. Get a 1:1 consultation with Margaret or author Rayne Lacko. Hear strategies for when you’re stuck and learn how to navigate the world of publishing.

Bring pieces you're currently working on to get feedback from a peer group if you wish, or start something new. This is a supportive, informal group that will help take your writing to the next level.

The Teen Writers Workshop is sponsored by Kitsap Regional Library.

Teen writers, hope to see you at Bainbridge Public Library, 1270 Madison Avenue North. You can also check out the Resources for Teen Writers below.
