There’s Something for Everyone @ your Library in July


A Pew Research Center study confirmed teenagers lives are filled with writing.  Granted, teens write for school, but 93% reported they also writing for their own pleasure.  The way teens write today has changed, especially with texting, but the vast majority embrace written communication with peers sharing messages via Facebook, Instagram, and blogs.

The study also pointed out, although teens are heavily embedded in a technological world, they do not equate communication over the internet or text messaging as actual writing.  While the debate over whether electronic communication is a valid form of writing goes on, it is evident teens are truly creative and need outlets to let their artistic and imaginative juices flow.  This summer we have that opportunity at the Safety Harbor Library offering a five week Teen Creative Writing Workshop, beginningTuesday, July 1 through Tuesday, July 29, 4:30 pm.

This workshop, presented by author Laura Kepner, will focus on several key elements of writing, including subject, plot, character and story development, pacing, setting, dialogue, and point of view.  If you are an aspiring writer of any level, enjoy great storytelling through writing, join us to experiment with words and find your voice.  Bring a notebook, a pencil, a friend, and a wide open imagination.  Registration is required, call 727-724-1525 x4118.  If you miss a session, don’t worry!
