Write Now!

CMS Writing Club

FYI

Do you like to write creative stories, dream up poetry, or share journal entries? If so, then “Write Now” is just the club for you. Come and strike up a conversation and participate in peer promotion and critique of your greatest works.

The club allow students the opportunity to get together to discuss how they formulate stories, create dynamic characters and write for fun. This year will we also have several guest speakers come and host, including our very own Mr. Partin.

The club will meet in person on the 17th day of each month from 3:35-4:15 in the library.
If the 17th falls on a weekend or a district meeting, the club will meet the following scheduled school day.

The club members will have an opportunity to participate in an online forum to share writing samples in between meetings.
