An inclusive writing group for middle and high schoolers meant to foster literary community and inspire fresh stories on the page. The emphasis will be more on generating writing than on critique.
"Insist on your cup of stars. Once they have trapped you into being like everyone else, you will never see your cup of stars again.” –Eleanor Vance, from Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House.
Organized by our Writing Education Specialist Sharma Shields, Cup of Stars Writing Club meets regularly to provide local middle and high schoolers with a space to create, ask writing-related questions, find community, and generate fiction and more. Engaging writing prompts and thoughtful discussions will inspire tweens and teens in a fun, educational, and casual environment.
This writing club is meant to be a safe, friendly, creative space for BIPOC youth, LGBTQ+ youth, and youth with disabilities. All young writers are welcome so long as they respect the intentions of this space.
