Creative Writing Workshop for Teens

Thursday, March 4, 2021 - 6:30pm
Event location: 
ONLINE

 


FOR TEENS ONLY!

In this 3-week workshop, teens will learn creative writing tips with author Eric Bell!

Dates are February 18, 25, and March 4. Please plan to attend all three!

6:30PM-7:30PM (Virtual Event)


Eric Bell is a writer of middle grade books. His two novels, Alan Cole Is Not a Coward and Alan Cole Doesn't Dance, are about a seventh grade boy and his struggles with coming out as gay, as well as bullies, crushes, and self-acceptance. (You can check these books out at the library!)

When Eric is not writing, he can be found teaching writing classes and workshops around the Philadelphia area. He also performs in local improv group LCR Improv. Eric is happy to talk books to anyone; his main area of specialization is (of course) children's books.

There are a limited number of spaces in this workshop, so if you cannot make it, please give advance notice by sending an email to wvplyouth@gmail.com at least 1 week before this series begins so that we can give someone else a spot to join in.
