Writing Workshop for Kids in Eau Claire

colored pencils
As part of the Chippewa Valley Book Festival, local writers  will be holding  wonderful sounding workshops for young writers at the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library in Eau Claire.  Jessi Peterson is one of the presenters for the workshop for 3-5 graders.  Jessi is not only a poet of some renown (and she built her own cordwood house with a round hobbit door), she is also the Children's Librarian at the Chippewa Falls Public Library, so we know she knows how to work with kids!  She asked me to put this on the blog, since folks from quite a distance attended last year.

Here's the information to pass on to your young writers:

Let's Write!  Grades 3-5 10:30am-12pm . Chippewa Room
Join local writers Sara Bryan and Jessi Peterson for a morning of inventing, writing, and sharing. We’ll bring the paper, pencils, and a passel of tips, tricks, and treats! With Special Guest Appearance by The Cabinet of Curiosities, guaranteed to Ignite Your Imagination.  Attendees are encouraged to submit their work to the Young Writers Showcase.


Stories Save.  Grades 6-8 10:30 am- 12:00 pm, Eau Claire Room.
Join local writers Andrew Patrie and Derick Black for an exploration of how our experiences can be the most fertile soil for growing stories and relationships. Paper, pencils, and prompts will be provided to get you writing and sharing.

Register for either program online at ecpubliclibrary.info/kids or call 715-839-5007.
