Young Writers Workshops

These workshops give young writers a chance to spend part of their Saturday with experienced writers, 
practicing writing in a group setting which allows for sharing and hearing feedback.

Pizazz or bizarre --
Zany or far --
Can you get there by car?
Pick up your pen.
Start writing!

What size is an idea? What shape is a story? Join local writers Sara and Jessi for a morning exploring different ways to catch new writing ideas and shape them into satisfying stories.


JESSI PETERSON is a poet and a children's librarian in Chippewa Falls, WI.  She enjoys gardening and kayaking and reading, especially stories with unusual or fun-to-say words in them, like persnickety or funambulist!

SARA BRYAN earned her English degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and has championed poetry for the Chippewa Valley Book Festival since 2010. Recently, she’s been practicing her acting skills playing various roles as a member of ecWIT (Eau Claire Women in Theater). Would an actor get very far without good writers? Nope.
