Scary stories with our Teen Writing Club

The Write On Club laughs while one of them reads their short, scary stories.

The authors of our Write On Club don’t need much to frighten you. During their most recent meeting, they had to write scary stories that were only two sentences long.

One example:

The sound of a baby laughing isn’t usually terrifying. But it was 1 a.m., and I was supposed to be alone.

They also wrote monster stories starring atypical threats like ants, squirrels, and geese. (It is Halloween, after all.)

Then again, geese are pretty scary...

Then again, geese are pretty scary…

Our Write On Club is open to all teen writers. It meets on the third Monday of every month at our Main Branch.

We use different writing prompts and brainteasers to hone our writing skills. It’s a fun, supportive place to practice and improve your writing with other teens who are doing the same thing.

Our next meeting is 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 21, at our Main Branch. You can register for it on our website. 

dsc02477By the way, writers of all ages can join us in November for National Novel Writing Month.

Each November, authors are encouraged to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) to write a draft of their novel.

This year, Mentor Public Library has a series of programs to help and inspire any and all wordsmiths.

They include visits from authors who will offer advice on Nov. 9 and 14. Both talks are free and open to everyone.

We’re also hosting Freewrites where you can come to the library and have everything you need to write your masterpiece provided, including a clean well-lit place, a table to sit at, and a power outlet. There will also be coffee, and quite possibly sugary snacks.

The Freewrites will be from 5 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 2, 16 and 22 at our Main Branch.
