high school creative writing
The High School Creative Writing Club is a place for young aspiring lovers of writing and future authors to meet, explore all the aspects of great writing and what it takes to be an author, all while experiencing life with peers who love words too. Anyone can join!

Whether it is poetry, short stories or novellas, or drawn-out novels, this club will nourish and investigate strategies to develop plot, characters, setting, and other writing techniques along with various aspects of marketing and sales. We will discuss genre, developing an audience, and good potential first steps students can take while in high school to set themselves up for an excellent future as an author.  
For more information or if you have questions, please email [email protected]
As an author myself, I hope to share everything I've learned with you! Sign up today!
