Writer’s Club

Writers-ClubThe Library’s Writers Club is a place where you can put your thoughts on paper! Enhance your writing skills, participate in free-writing exercises and get feedback on written work.

The Writer’s Club meets the second Tuesday of each month from 1:30-3 pm. The Library is currently (only) doing curbside/virtual programs until further notice.


Virtual Writing Journal

I’ve asked our WBPL Writer’s Club members to share some of their writing during this time of social distancing at home. 

Remember that writing is a creative and healthy way to reduce stress and we encourage our reading community to perhaps dabble in some of their very own writing. We hope you enjoy these “quarantine” journals and use it as a way to read and escape into it’s many pages! 

Stay safe and wellWBPL Writer’s Club

Creative Writing Prompt: September

Attention writers! We will be posting a monthly writing prompt here each month:

Creative Writing Prompt: “Memory” or the “Dream State”

This months writing prompt focuses on Salvador Dali’s famous painting: The Persistence of Memory. Use this picture as a prompt or, you can think about Dali’s emphasis on the dream state. Write a short story or perhaps write about a surreal dream you’ve had recently. The word ‘memory’ can also be a great writing prompt. Wherever your imagination takes you, be sure to write it down!

Remember, there are no boundaries in creative writing! If you have writing (poems, free writing, short stories, etc.), you would like to submit for our virtual journal, please email Nicole Peters at teen.department@wbpl.us.
