Ages 12-17

​Participants will each write their own part of either a collected work or a stand-alone book for publication. They may choose to write poetry, memoir, or fiction. They may choose to illustrate their piece or not. They will also create non-fiction author biographies. During eight one-hour sessions, the authors will create their manuscript or section of the manuscript under the guidance of local author, J Monkeys. Approximately 4 weeks after the completion of the manuscript(s), the program will meet one last time for a book launch party where they will each receive a copy of the book to keep, have an opportunity to sign each other's books, and share their experience with friends and family whom they invite to the party. Book launch party will be on Monday, January 8 from 6:30-7:30.

​Mondays, 10/16-12/4, 6:30-7:30pm, Wapping School Room 58, $200
