The words once upon a time written across a blank paper.

If you like to write fiction, join Write Club! Come to the upstairs meeting room at the Bedford Central Library to meet and chat with other young writers about your prose. Whether you write fan fiction or your own original stories, this is the place for you to share your work, get feedback, and make friends who share your passion! This month we are polishing our descriptive skills with a writing exercise. Bring something you have written to color-code sensory details and see where your strengths and weaknesses lie!
