Weekly Club Meetings

Each month, young writers will explore a different creative writing genre. With their fellow authors, they’ll examine examples of literary elements that separate the good genre writers from the greats. Writers will hone their craft through imaginative exercises, learn how to edit their work, and contribute to their club’s writing collection.

Monthly Themes

January: Realistic Fiction & Characterization

Students will dip their pen into the genre that explores everyday events and the people that make them so interesting: realistic fiction. They'll study the elements of characterization while working on their own piece of realistic fiction.

February: Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Their Settings

What do Hogwarts, the Millennium Falcon, and Narnia have in common? They’re great science fiction and fantasy settings! This month, we’ll discuss fantasy, science fiction, and the places that make them come to life. Learners will also explore the elements of setting while working on their own piece of fantasy or science fiction.

March: Poetry & Figurative Language

Figures of speech like alliteration, metaphors, and similes give poetry its beauty. This month, budding poets will try their hand at this genre. Learners will also explore the ins and outs of figurative language while working on their own poems.

April: Mysteries & Plot

Writing the perfect whodunit doesn’t have to be a mystery. This month, learners will investigate how plot contributes to suspense and intrigue while working on their own piece of mystery writing.

May: Autobiography & Voice

How would you tell the story of your own life? Writers will get a shot at self-reflection and hone their unique voice while working on their autobiography.
