Would you consider yourself to be a young Rowling in the making? Is Shakespeare your guy? Feel at home whenever your pen is on paper, or your fingers on the keys? Check out VPL’s newest club for teens! Our Teen Writers Club is the place where you can write, discuss, and share with like-minded friends. You never know when a new idea from someone else will be just the inspiration you need! It starts at the Civic Centre Resource Library on September 12 at 3:30, and at Pierre Burton Resource Library on September 13 at 3:00pm, and then every other week after that. For ages 13-18, and no registration required.


Can’t wait to get together? You can upload your latest writing project on the WriteIt! Blog, and see what everyone is writing about.
