Open to all age groups

The goal of this class will be to help students break past the common obstacles that plague young writers: peer review, in writing revision, vocabulary, perfectionism, etc. This class is not designed to increase technical writing ability, but to help students tap into their creative capacity. Let’s overcome fear and harness true creativity.
Typewriters, paper, and recycle boxes will be provided. Students keep all written work & have the opportunity to be featured on casualword.com’s poet of the week column (with signed parental consent forms [provided]).
The agenda for the event is as follows:
- 4pm – Introduction
- 4:30pm – Q&A
- 5pm – writing
