“Fun, Friends, and the Future” at Young Willamette Writers

June 7, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On Tuesday, June 7th, 7:00-8:00 p.m., at the Tabor Space at 5441 SE Belmont St. in Portland , the Young Willamette Writers meeting will be the last of the school year, but we have lots of special-ness planned! We like to take these breaks from listening to speakers to do fun, and sometimes very silly, writing exercises. The meeting is free and open to any student in 5th-10th grades.

Please Note: Our June meeting will be held at the Tabor Space at 5441 SE Belmont St. in Portland from 7-8 p.m.

“Fun, Friends, and the Future”Our June 7 Young Willamette Writers meeting will be the last of the school year, but we have lots of special-ness planned! We like to take these breaks from listening to speakers to do fun, and sometimes very silly, writing exercises. This time, too, several young writers will bring short pieces they’ve worked on to share with the group.

Now that we’re looking toward the next year with YWW, it’s a great time to brainstorm which authors and speakers we’d like to invite. What topics do we want to hear about? What areas of our writing do we want to learn to improve? Are there writing careers we’ve wondered about? Are there particular local writers we’d like to invite?

Join us! Bring your best (short) piece of writing, your imagination, and ideas for next year! As always, our meetings are free to students in 5th-10th grades.
