Creative Writing Club To Host Their First Meeting

Creative Writing Club To Host Their First Meeting

The Creative Writing Club will host their first meeting on Thursday. The club will meet in room 409 after school.

“I am just blessed to be able to be a sponsor for this club,” Brandi Bridges said. “I believe that this will be a place for students to share ideas and bring creative students together in a safe and welcoming environment.”

The club will meet every first Thursday of the month to discuss the writing process, share ideas, and work on developing and creating short stories and novels. Potential scholarships will be given to students as well as the possibility of getting their work published. 

“I feel that the club has promise and is worth the work myself and my friends have put into it,” freshman Josey Derosier said. “It’s something we’ve been talking about for a while, and I’m glad that it’s finally being made into a reality.”

Derosier is the founder of the club. She and her leadership team came up with all the activities, such as word building, character creation, and plot development.

“I started this club to provide a place for writers to share their work and hopefully start them on the path of publishing their projects,” Derosier said. “The original idea was drafted when a few friends of mine mentioned that there wasn’t anything related to creative writing offered at our school, so my friend and I started working on something that would remedy that.”

The club was made for students to improve their writing skills and share their work. They will submit their work to contests and events in the future. 

“The main purpose of the club is to help other writers better their work and get their names out there,” Derosier said. “This will hopefully make their journey in the publishing world a bit easier and also help them improve their various projects.”

About 20 students will be joining the club on their first meeting. The club will be sponsored by faculty member Brandi Bridges.

“I am excited that students came up with the idea,” Bridges said. The goal is that the club grows enough to implement an actual creative writing class.”
