Write On!

Write On! is a free program for teens interested in writing offered at the Durham County Library through a partnership with the UNC-Chapel Hill Writing Center. The goal of the program is to encourage teens to explore their intellectual and creative abilities in the company of other teens and with the guidance of writing coaches.

UNC and Duke students, trained through the Writing Center, facilitate Tuesday evening workshops for teens in 7th through 12th grades in the library’s Main Branch. The focus of fall workshops is essay writing, and the focus of spring workshops is creative writing. Teens can come on a drop-in basis but are encouraged to attend regularly.

The Tuesday evening Write On! Workshops encourage fun, freedom, and focus.  For more information about the Write On program, contact Writing Center director Dr. Kimberly Abels at kabels@email.unc.edu.
