  • Spark Center 1214 West Summit Parkway Spokane, WA, 99201 United States (map)

Wednesday, April 13 // 4 PM

Hosted and emceed by teen writers participating in INKlings, a teen writing group mentored by local authors , this discussion will cover a wide range of topics relevant to young writers, driven by their questions about how to approach revision, how to submit their work, whether to pursue formal study in creative writing, and much, much more. The panel of adult authors who write in a wide range of genres and styles--Jess Walter, Kris Dinnison, Trent Reedy, Stephanie Oakes, and Rachel Toor--will speak about their early experiences with writing, how they've stuck with it over the years, and offer tips and advice in response to questions from young writers. 

The INKlings is a teen writing group that helps high schoolers take their skills to the next level while learning alongside published local authors. This group grows together as writers in a creative, encouraging environment with an eye on publication opportunities.
