Applications are required and are available beginning May 1, 2016, at the Ringer Library Reference Desk. The program is limited to 20 teens.

Author Molly Blaisdell (who also writes as Cece Barlow) will lead weekly workshops every Wednesday in June and July except July 6. The group will meet from 2:30 to 5:00.

Teens will complete one polished piece by the end of the 8-week program, and each participant will choose whether that will be a short story, the first chapter of a novel, a nonfiction article, poetry, or illustrations.

Each week of the program will focus on a different topic related to writing or illustrating and publishing. By the end of the program, the library will compile and publish an anthology of teens’ work.

Each person will be limited to 3000 words or 12 pages. After first publication, all rights will revert to the authors.
