“Write Now” Programs at a Library Near You!

Hello Teen Writers!

Sno-Isle Libraries “Write Now” programs are scheduled for 2017, starting in July!  Jackie wrote up a great blog post about the programs. I wanted to add that there may be more events like this at the branch nearest you.  Last year several libraries added writing programs throughout the fall that weren’t on the “Write Now” list.  I’ll keep my eyes open for them, but check on our events page for you local branch.

Write Now 2017

by Jackie 

We know that writers almost always start out as big readers – and that readers often want to be writers. Between July and December, Sno-Isle Libraries is again hosting our sucessful Write Now series, this year with over forty classes aimed at aspiring and published writers. Whether you’re struggling with page one or you have a full manuscript in your hands, be it fiction, children’s, nonfiction, or if you just want to write your family’s history, there’s a session for you. All classes are entirely free to attend, although registration is suggested for many of them.

Find the upcoming Write Now events below. On our events calendar you’ll be able to limit the search to the libraries near you and register.

Due to space limitations and to ensure value for attendees, some events require registration. They are denoted by an asterisk. See our events calendar to register.
