Tweens and teens to meet at library

Written by 

The “tween” writing group “Write On!” for 8- to 12-year-olds will meet at 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 4 at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva.

The group will meet twice a month in the conference room of the library. A similar program for older teens, aged 13-16, will be called “WORD” and will begin meeting on Oct. 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the same location. “Write On!” began last year and was a success, with 20 regular attendees. At the end of last year’s workshop, the children submitted stories and poems for a book that was published and put in the library’s catalog. “Write On!” will meet twice monthly through December. A spring schedule will be decided upon at a later date. Like the group for younger writers, WORD will also meet twice monthly through December. No sign-up is required for either of these programs.

And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
