CityLit Teens Announces Two Locations for Spring 2012!

Hey Teen Writers, Why You Want to Check it Out:
Think you are the only one scribbling story ideas on scraps of paper? Is your favorite handheld device a book? Want to meet others your age who are also into writing? Join CityLit Teens -- a writing, publishing, and public reading program for 9th to 12th grade creative writers. Learn new forms of poetry and prose. Help design the group's book. Get published!!! Yes, that's three (count 'em!) exclamation points. It all concludes with each writer receiving a free copy of the book at a public reading.
Hey Parents, What it's All About:

CityLit Teens engages youth who demonstrate an interest in creative writing or who may not have had previous opportunities to express themselves creatively through the written word.  Through a series of six lessons that explore various types of creative writing, youth will write, help design, title, and preform a reading from the group’s own professionally published book (a free copy of which they will receive at the program’s conclusion).  In addition to teaching youth literary art, CityLit Teens develops team building, basic design, and public speaking skills. 

Dates: March 31 through May 12, 2012 (with a week off on April 14 which is the big CityLit Festival)

Times: Saturdays from 10-12


Baltimore -- University of Baltimore (LAP-209 in Liberal Arts and Policy Building, 10 W. Preston Street) with Gregg Wilhelm, Chris Hudson, Katrina Robinson

Bel Air -- Harford Community College (Havre de Grace Hall, Room TBD, 401 Thomas Run Road) with Gina Sabo and Cailin Iverson
