CityLit Teens is a unique program for youth where teenagers explore creative writing, teamwork, and public reading skills while they write, title, and design a professionally printed book of their own. CityLit Teens allows youth to express themselves creatively while providing them with the sense of accomplishment that comes from being published.
The program starts February 12 and runs for nine consecutive Saturdays. Instructor Robyn Barberry brings her experience as an English teacher and her passion as a writer to a dynamic series of exploratory sessions where teens will learn various forms of writing (fiction, poetry, essay). This writing will be compiled into a book that participants get to title, help design, and receive for free at the end of the program.
CityLit Project is thrilled to partner with CCBC Essex for the first time to offer a perfect classroom environment for young writers. See the PDF link below for a campus map and classroom location for CityLit Teens.
