YOUNG WRITERS GROUP FOR KIDS 

AT BAINBRIDGE PUBLIC LIBRARY 

 

(Grades 3-6)



 

The Young Writers Group continues in the 2019/20 school year! Our next meeting will take place on Tuesday, November 19 from 3:30 to 5 pm

 

All young writers in Grades 3-6 and all levels of writing are welcome. We meet the 3rd Tuesday of the month during the school year (except December).

 

Our goal is to create a safe, comfortable space for young authors to explore their craft. Come join us! 


Budding authors will write stories, novels, and poems from their own imaginations. They may 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 sponsored by Kitsap Regional Library. No registration, just bring yourself and your desire to write. 

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

CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP (AGES 8-12)

 

FALL 2019

All writing levels welcome!
