River Styx Creative Writing Workshops

River Styx Creative Writing Workshops

We are excited to announce a new series of creative writing workshops from River Styx at the Brentwood Public Library!  The eight week sesson will be on Sundays from 1-3 pm beginning 3/19 and running until 5/14 (no workshop on 4/16 due to Easter). The session will cost $115. Follow the link now to reserve your spot.

The Creative Writing Workshop is for poetry, fiction, and non-fiction writers alike. In-class exercises will explore poetry concepts such as rhythm and voice; fiction concepts such as point-of-view and magical realism; and non-fiction concepts such as the braided essay. Readings will include work from George Saunders, Dana Levin, Edward McPherson, Adrian Matejka, and Joyce Carol Oates.

Welcome to Your Makerspace!


Kids and Teens are invited to come in every Tuesday after school to explore low-tech and high-tech gizmos and create their own projects using STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

  • Big Ideas Club (grade school kids): Every Tuesday, 3-4 p.m.
  • Innovative Teens Club (middle and high school kids): Every Tuesday, 4-5 p.m.

Stay tuned for additional STEM programs and events offered throughout the school year! This project is supported in part by a federal by the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Missouri State Library.
