Calling all storytellers, writers, poets! 


Sign up for this free writing class, generously funded by Hearts (Help Enrich The Arts in Port Washington) and supported by the Port Washington Public Library. Do you want to hone your skills as a creative writer and find venues and publications to share your work? This class is for you. All you have to do is make a commitment for 6 weeks to compose, revise and polish writing in a particular genre, including flash fiction, essay, a series of poems, a memoir, short story, creative non-fiction and more. We'll read contemporary voices, including published teens, and learn how to submit our work to teen literary journals. Culmination will include a reading of our best work. 


For more information and to register, contact Sonia Arora at


The class will be capped at 22, so sign up before it fills up.
