Does your public library sponsor a teen writing group?
Below you’ll find a list of just a few of the hundreds of libraries that do. Some are only in the summer; some are year-long. Some of the programs include published authors as mentors or speakers.
If your library doesn’t offer a writing program for teens, why don’t you talk to them about starting one?
