Olean Public Library Serving the community since 1871

Teens/Young Adults

Aspiring Authors Workshop

  • Who: Students in grades 8-12
  • Where: Olean Public Library's Conference Room
  • When: Every first Monday @ 3:30 PM

If you have a serious writing habit and would like to take it to the next level, come check out our monthly writing group.

Bring your latest writing project from any genre, either short story or novel length, and learn how to edit, write better descriptions, create more realistic characters, and get tips on how to prepare for publishing.

We will share work with the group, so prepare to read aloud, or to have work read silently by a peer for editing and advice. This will be a working session, so bring paper/pen, laptop, or tablet. No signup necessary.

Upcoming meetings: Mar. 2nd, Apr 6th , May 4th , and Jun 1st
