Writing workshop for teens

Erin Delaney (of Take A Hike, Living in Sections, and The Duped Scholar) will be running a writing (and publishing!) workshop for teens this summer. There are still a few spots available. From the announcement post on Living in Sections:

DIY: On Assignment
A Summer Writing Workshop for Teens
July 13 - 17th, 9 a.m. - noon
at Paper Kite Press Studio & Gallery
443 Main Street • Kingston, PA

Got a lot of writing ideas, but can't find a place to publish? Why not cook up a scheme to put together your own underground publication! During this one week workshop, students will develop the creative journalism elements that it takes to create and publish a DIY Zine. Students will write mastheads, construct entertaining feature stories, and conduct their own interviews while tapping into their creative side with artistic layouts and collage.

Cost for the week is $150 and includes supplies.
Registration in advance is a must.
Call 570-328-8658 for details, or email us at
