Teen Writer Workshoppers

Correction: You may have read in some other emails, or in the Advocate that the Teen Writers Workshop was meeting through the end of the school year. That's a mistake. Teen Writers Workshop will definitely be meeting in February and March with the possibility of extending through April (depending on Lynette's very busy schedule and your interest in continuing on). But as to the rest of the school year? Eh...a little too far in the future to say. Probably no, though (like when your mom says "maybe..." but really secretly is just buying herself a little time before you throw her a sulk because she said no. Which she inevitably will.). Alright. In the meantime, you've got a writers workshop coming up next week. Get crackin'!

Busy, busy bees.

Well, while you've been out shoveling small mountains, we've been taking advantage of the cold, snowy winter to chase down some programming ideas that have been floating around. So without giving too much away, here's what coming up...a songwriting workshop with the amazing Meg Hutchinson (What? How on earth did you land such talent?), a book making class, some workshops to show you how to get a job (harder than it looks), more teen writer's workshops, one after-hours gaming night... Lots of stuff.

In the meantime, we've got two things for you to do:
-Scrabble Tournament this Saturday, from 12 - 5
-The Anti-Valentine's Day Party (have your futures read!), on Monday, from 6 - 8.
