“Don’t get it right, just get it written.” -James ThurberJanuary 10, 2011
James’ sound advice is often heard at Thurber House’s Young Writers’ Studio. As we approach YWS’s historic, five-year Anniversary, I’d like to thank the staff at Thurber House, the numerous teen writers who have invested their talent and time and the authors, writers and educators who have shared their wisdom with all of us over the past five years.
YWS continues to offer teen writers the chance to receive feedback on their writing, learn new techniques, explore different writing genres and have fun in a supportive environment with teens who love to write.
Join us the following up-coming Wednesdays:
All sessions are from 6:30 ? 8:30 p.m. at Thurber House, 77 Jefferson Avenue, the restored home of author, humorist, and New Yorker cartoonist James Thurber. Each session is $15 and can be paid at the door, or register online for all ten sessions for $150. A limited number of scholarships are available. For more information call Pat Shannon at 614-464-1032 ext.13 or visit http://www.thurberhouse.org. Space is limited and is first-come, first served.
