The “tween” writing group “Write On!” for 8- to 12-year-olds will meet at 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 4 at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva.
The group will meet twice a month in the conference room of the library. A similar program for older teens, aged 13-16, will be called “WORD” and will begin meeting on Oct. 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the same location. “Write On!” began last year and was a success, with 20 regular attendees. At the end of last year’s workshop, the children submitted stories and poems for a book that was published and put in the library’s catalog. “Write On!” will meet twice monthly through December. A spring schedule will be decided upon at a later date. Like the group for younger writers, WORD will also meet twice monthly through December. No sign-up is required for either of these programs.
