Teens invited to writing workshop

Print Article

SANDPOINT — Teens who write unite at the East Bonner County Library District’s Sandpoint branch for “Away With Words,” a free young adult writing workshop led by Beth Weber.

Weekly sessions begin on Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 5:15 p.m. in the Sandpoint Library’s Teen Lounge and continue on Tuesdays through May.

Young writers are invited to drop in for individual sessions or attend all sessions in the series. Registration is encouraged, but not required. Attendees will learn and be inspired by their peers and Sandpoint Literary Collective member, Beth Weber.

“This is not really introductory, but more a way to learn through a sharing of work to improve writing skills,” said Kimber Glidden, The Library’s Teen Services coordinator.

Beth Weber was recently selected from an international pool of applicants to attend the Key West Literary Seminar’s Poetry Workshop led by US Poet Laureate, Billy Collins. Based on the merit of her poetry, she received a grant from the Idaho Commission on the Arts supporting her trip.

For the past three years, Weber has studied poetry with six-times published poet and creative writing instructor, Jim Mitsui. She credits Jim for nurturing and helping to sustain her creative writing energy.

Questions may be directed to Kimber Glidden (208)263-6930 ext. 1245 or kimber@ebonnerlibrary.org.
