Youth Writer's Workshop
Throughout the school year, Word As Bond (WORD) conducts a series of free creative writing workshops for Indianapolis area teens. In the workshops, writers are given a topic to write about for a short interval, and when that time is up they share their writing among the group. The workshops also include discussion of upcoming events in which writers can participate. Workshops are held two Saturdays each month at different locations in Indianapolis from 11A.M-1P.M. To participate in these workshops teens (13-17 years old) simply need to obtain parental permission and submit an application. Teens 18 years and above need only submit the application. We're looking for as many excited minds as possible to join us in our learning and growing experience. Interested in YWW? Apply here.
