paper-3033204_640We’re hosting a special Journal Night for teens and tweens at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 23.

Young writers can unwind and find an outlet for their creativity during our program. We’ll provide writing prompts and a supportive atmosphere where thoughts and ink may flow freely.

Journal Night is open to all teens and tweens (ages 11 to 18.) The program will be hosted via Zoom, and you have to register to get the link. You can sign up on our website or by calling us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247. Once registered, teens and tweens can pick up a special writing kit from the our Main Branch. It includes a notebook, pen and stickers to help you get started.

The library also offers a lot more resources for writers:

  1. Lynda.com offers video tutorials from pros on all different kinds of writing: fiction, screenwriting, even business writing. And the tutorials are free to watch with your library card.
  2. Learn from the experts of The Great Courses! Some of the best college professors in the world offer tips on writing great essays and fiction! Great Courses can get expensive to buy, but many are free to stream with your library card and our digital services.
  3. You probably already know this, but we also have hundreds of books and videos on writing that you can borrow from our collection.
  4. Finally, you may enjoy suggestions from professional authors. We’ve interviewed dozens of writers who’ve visited our library. See what advice they share on our YouTube channel.
