Head’s Up! Free Writing Workshop

Standard

The Cape cod Writers Center is holding a day long free workshop entitled ‘Tomorrow’s Writers Today’ with authors Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Barnstable Intermediate School in Hyannis.  It is a chance to work with published local authors and hone your own skills as a blossoming writer. Applications must be post marked by October 24.  I have some of the forms available in the Teen Reads Area or you can go to the website http://capecodwriterscenter.org/events/young-writers-workshops/ to see what it’s all about.  Good luck!

This I think could be fun…..
