Via Zoom

This popular monthly writer's forum is for beginner and seasoned writers who write for children and young adults. If you are interested in sharing your work for gentle critique and feedback, this monthly group may be just for you. This is a great opportunity to share your work with fellow writers in a positive, non-judgmental format.

Please try to keep pieces to 5 pages, doubled spaced.

***Remember that you never need to make an edit to your piece just because someone suggested it. Your piece is your own.  You only need to take what is most helpful to you.

Admission is via a "Tip Jar." Use the dropdown menu to choose an amount. There is still a free option; all tips are greatly appreciated.

The Writer's Forum is limited to 8 participants. Students must register by Tuesday, February 28, to receive the Zoom link.
