Young Writers' Studio
"Don't get it right, just get it written." - James Thurber
Every other week, local teens gather at Thurber Center to write, create, and explore ways to get their stories on paper. Whether it's a passion, or just a hobby, we invite any student in grades 9-12 to join us for an opportunity to spend time with others who also like to write.
With Columbus College of Art and Design professor Robert Loss, we challenge students to take a different spin each week through exploratory exercises designed to inspire out-of-the box thinking. A portion of each session is set aside for young writers who would like to bring in their own writing to be reviewed and discussed by their peers in a creative and nurturing environment. Students who prefer not to bring in work take part by learning how to talk about writing in a constructive way while helping fellow writers improve their pieces.
Sessions take place on select Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Young Writers' Studio is held at Thurber Center, 91 Jefferson Ave. Each session is $15 and can be paid at the door or in advance by registering online. We also have a limited number of scholarships available for students who would like to attend.
