Teen Readers

Interested in joining a Teen Writing Group?

Teens come together to share and critique writing, often with a nationally published young adult author as a mentor and participant. An incredible opportunity for aspiring teen writers! Free and open exclusively to teens. 

A former Teen Advisory Board member said, "All of us read some writing, and then the conversation naturally went towards unique ways they develop characters and what platforms they use to help get inspired and to publish their work. They had really unique approaches - like using mood boards, matching songs to characters, and creating virtual versions of their characters. We did a short setting exercise, too, that looked at how settings change over time."

Tattered Cover Aspen Grove: This group meets the last Sunday of each month from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm. This is free and open exclusively to teens. Please email Anna to RSVP.
