Workshop planned to help teens with essays

College-bound high school seniors and juniors are invited to the Jamestown Philomenian Library for help in starting their personal essays on Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 7 to 9:30 p.m.

During the free workshop, teens will brainstorm what to write about, how best to write about it, and why. Lively activities will help students identify and recognize their core beliefs and interests and then write about them with clarity, candor and confidence. Participants should bring a laptop or a pen and paper.

The workshop is led by Jamestowner Jim Stahl, who directs the online Merlyn’s Pen New Library of Young Adult Writing. Class size is limited to 15. Register by calling the library at 423-7280.
