Germantown Teen Writers Club

The fourth year of the Germantown Teen Writers Club, sponsored by the Maryland Writers’ Association and hosted by the Montgomery County Public Library, will begin Sept. 25, 2017. Middle and high school teens are welcome to attend and seek support in their creative writing efforts. The meetings include writing prompts, occasional speakers and a variety of engaged lessons in writing prose or poetry. Primarily it is an opportunity for writers to get constructive feedback from peers and adults on their own writing — whether it is for fun, to submit to writing contests, or to be published.

Meetings are the second and fourth Mondays of each month, 7-8:30 p.m.

Journalist Andrew Mayeda, who also enjoys writing fiction, will be filling in for me through December as I complete an editing contract for a news service.

Stay tuned for the 3rd teen anthology!

We are completing work on the next teen anthology, a compilation of stories and poems from participants of Teen Writers Clubs across Maryland. The next book is expected to be available on Amazon by the end of the year.
