High School Students Put Pen to Paper At Owens Community College

Owens Community College is pleased to offer a distinctive opportunity for area high school students who have an interest in creative writing. A new High School Writers' Workshop will meet weekly with a group of writers to discuss, critique and support writing.

The High School Writers' Workshop is free and open to all high school students, ages fourteen to eighteen. Owens' program will take place every Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. in College Hall Room 156-D on the Toledo-area Campus, which is located on Oregon Road, four miles from downtown Toledo. The workshop runs from August 24 through December 7.

"High school writing students will have a free opportunity to create, refine and recast their work in a variety of literary forms, such as short stories, poetry, song lyrics, free-verse rap and flash fiction," said Kathleen Geckeis, Owens Manager of the Writing Center. "Finished products will appear in the Owens literary journal, 'Belles Lettres.' "

For more information, call (567) 661-7385 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 7385.
