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.

Virtual Writing Journal & Short Stories

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 short stories, use it as a way to read and escape into many pages! 

Stay safe and wellWBPL’s Writers Club

Creative Writing Prompt: May

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

Creative Writing Prompt: “A Month of Writing: Famous First Lines (of novels!)”

Every few months I choose to do what I like to call a “Month of Writing” along with a theme, this month I focus on famous first lines of our favorite novels. You’ll notice there is a writing prompt for every weekday. The goal of this exercise is for writers to use these “famous first lines” as writing prompts, to gain an idea or inspiration from them – then to just free-write for a few minutes or an hour even. Sometimes, our greatest ideas are hidden within our ‘less serious’ writing, an exercise, a free-writing session!

Check out the calendar below, you can also print a PDF version HERE:

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.
