Call to Quills

Greetings fellow scribblers,

This is a ‘call to arms’ for any of you interested in helping conduct mini creative writing seminars for future WCW writers.

Talking children, here.

Those intrepid creative minds who will bravely follow one day in our footsteps.

The idea is to hold some short creative writing seminars to stimulate and encourage young minds about the art of story telling.

I’m thinking of possible venues like the Boys and Girls Club, the library, the YMCA, the Whittier Area Literacy Center, et cetera.

Being, basically, an illiterate scholastic drop-out, I’m seeking advice from you professional writers and teachers in developing a curriculum.

This could be very exciting.

As well as rewarding.

Especially if we only manage to ignite just one young Pulitzer, John Greenleaf Whittier, or J.K.Rowling.

If any of this sounds interesting, or if you have ideas, please email me at steve.enyart [at] gmail.com.

Or call me at 562.693.9755. (Thanks to our wonderful telemarketers, email will be more effective.)

Thanks.

  1. This is a great idea, Steve. Perhaps we could have a joint workshop focused on Creative Writing and we could have someone present Poetry and another present a session on Character Development or Scene–whatever the presenter would be willing to share. This could be really fun!

  2. Thanks Claire.
    There’s nothing much more exciting than watching little kids’ eyes light up with new ideas.
    I have connections at the Boys and Girls Club and the Whittier Literacy Center.
    I’m going to do this.
    Hopefully, starting with a very small group — thinking maybe, three to six.
