The goal of Writer's Club is to nurture your writer's ability to tap into their writing voice. We will access the words within them and explore self-expression in written form, while giving students a safe space to share their writing with an audience!
Writer's Club is open to any child interested, regardless of age! I keep this multi-aged and always endeavor to meet kids where they are at in their writing life! Children attending Writer's Club are usually anywhere from age 8 up through high school.
In 2010, giving homage to Gwendolyn Brooks, poet Terrance Hayes devised a new type of poetic form called The Golden Shovel. The Golden Shovel is where acrostic meets found poetry, where the last words of each line are, in order, words from a line taken often, but not always, from a Brooks poem. Join us for this Writer’s Club, where we explore the creation of The Golden Shovel and create our own!
