Young Writers Society
During the school year, students of all skill levels can find the freedom to express their creativity through storytelling, poetry, journalism, and creative writing at Page 15’s after-school Young Writers Society.
Providing free, specialized literacy coaching and enrichment, students enjoy the rewards that come with consistent writing practice, exploring vocabulary, concepts, and writing styles that they wouldn’t otherwise experience in a more formal traditional classroom setting.
By cultivating an atmosphere of mutual respect, love and concern for one another, students find a safe creative space for their personal expression.
Page 15’s Young Writers Society is currently open to children enrolled at OCPS’s Academic Center for Excellence and is open after school on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Downtown Recreation Center, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays at our new space at the Grand Avenue Neighborhood Center!
