About: We provide opportunities to those who want to write and gain experience writing while simultaneously getting inspiration, feedback and reassurance from their peers. As such, the club is a place where writers will discuss the challenges of writing, encourage each other, read aloud contemporary literature, and refine their creative, literary, narrative, and poetic sensibilities. In order to achieve these ends, the club has weekly meetings in which writers workshop each other’s poems, short stories, novel excerpts, and creative non-fiction. See Calendar for meeting dates. Our members will also try out for the UIL Journalism Headline Writing, Editorial Writing, and Feature Writing events.
Requirements: A desire to write, participation in peer editing and workshoping, ability to receive constructive criticism to hone your writing craft, and meeting attendance (minimum of 50% of meetings)
