Do you love writing stories and poetry? Can't get enough fanfic? Do you want to try your hand at creating comics? Maybe exploration through creative non-fiction is your thing? Creative Flow is a brand new club for kids ages 11 and older interested in writing, drawing, and all other kinds of storytelling. Stop by if you'd love to have some free writing time, the chance to share and/or workshop your work, and learn more about competitions and publishing.
We'll meet every Monday from 4-5 p.m. starting June 6th. Contact Lindsay at firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-963-8649 if you have any questions.
