Readers Are Writers: Tween Writing Group

Children Registration Drop-in

Tweens ages 8-14 are invited to participate in a new virtual writing group with prompts and other activities tailored to their age group!

Readers are Writers, led by MCPL staff, will take place privately through the free Padlet app, and no in-person meetings are planned. We'll post new writing prompts or examples of short stories each month, and tween writers will take it from there! This is a great chance for tweens to practice their writing skills and engage in a creative community with other tweens. Also, because it's virtual, any tween can participate from anywhere!

Registration is required to receive the Padlet information, and can be done by clicking the "Register" button on this page. Call MCPL Wausau at 715-261-7220 for more information on how to participate.
