Fall Semester Writers’ Group

This fall, Rude Mechs is expanding Off Center Teens into the school year and offering a semester-long Writers’ Group. Lead by Off Center Teens Program Director, Patrick Shaw, this semester Writers’ Group offers the opportunity for teens to deepen their creative and autobiographical writing skills and their personal artistic development during the school year.

The Writers’ Group will provide young artists a place to take artistic risks, explore their imaginations together, develop their narrative craft, and deepen their senses of themselves through the practice of writing and sharing their own stories.

Just like summer camp sessions, Off Center Teens Writers’ Group sessions will tailor to the teens’ interests, support the teens as they develop their stories, and will continue to explore experimental theatre techniques of composition, journaling, improvisation, and found-text collage, among others.

At the end of the semester, campers will have the opportunity to share their work in a public reading. This showing will present a group of young, self-possessed artists, engaged in a brave, authentic expression of their world and themselves.
