EPIC Group Writers and the Edmonds Art Commission present four writing workshops for teens in the region, the first scheduled for Saturday, September 25.
Meadowdale English teacher and EPIC board member Alison Ersfeld received a grant from the Edmonds Arts Commission to deliver the workshops.
“Our mission is to create and support a community of writers of all skill levels and backgrounds who share, encourage and nurture the literary and other creative arts,” she said. âThis grant allows EPIC to host four writing workshops for adolescents, facilitated by published authors.
These one-hour workshops are free for teens and will take place on Zoom.
The first workshop is at 11 a.m. on September 25 with award-winning young adult author Jeff Zentner. He is the author of The Serpent King, Farewell days, and Midnite morning of Rayne and Delilah. He came to writing through music, starting his creative life as a guitarist and eventually becoming a songwriter. He has released five albums and appeared on recordings with Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Thurston Moore, Debbie Harry, Mark Lanegan and Lydia Lunch, among others.
All teens are welcome. Register in advance using the link on the EPIC website or use the QR Code:
Upcoming guests at the workshop include YA bestselling author Ellen Hopkins, award-winning poet Ebo Barton, and songwriter, singer and musician Jon Muq.
