EDMONTON TEEN WRITER LETTER EXCHANGE
The Writers Guild of Alberta Edmonton Teen Writing group is gearing up to get started. This year, be ready to write like you’ve never written before. Finish that set of poems. Complete your novel. Polish a short story. Maybe even get published?
But our first meeting covers another type of writing, too. Letter writing!
Before the days of emails and Facebook likes and tweets, people wrote letters to each other. They wrote their souls on paper before folding it up, addressing the envelope and sending it in the mail to a partner, a friend, or even a pen pal they have never met in person.
Our first WGA Teen Writing Group session will explore the craft of letter writing, taking a look at famous writers and their letters, and pairing up with other teen writing groups in the province, setting you up with your own pen pal for the year (and we will indeed be using pens!).
For information and to register, contact Erinne Sevigny ([email protected]) for the Edmonton group.
