But this is National Novel Writing Month—the perfect time for big ideas and wild first drafts. And Wordplay, our writing club for kids, is participating too.

Young writers can come to our Open Write from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 29. Bring your ideas, your notebook and stories to work on. There will be no planned activities—just time to write and a few prompts.

Each month, our Wordplay Club finds different ways to boost their creativity. For example, sometimes we commune with nature or create poems with refrigerator magnets.

Our club is open to all writers in third through sixth grade.

Wordplay Creative Writing Club meets at 4:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of every month at our Main Branch. The next meeting is Dec. 14.

You can register your child for Wordplay by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221 or by visiting the Mentor Library’s website.

And, in case you're wondering how their collaborative story ends, all the characters die and their bodies are left in a well. Kids can sometimes be ... macabre.
