Attention Queens parents, teachers, and kids: free creative writing classes available again at Queens Library!

Newtown Literary Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the writing of prose and poetry in Queens, in partnership with Queens Library, is offering free creative writing classes for kids and teens.

The next class is Saturday, February 2nd at 1 p.m.–2:30 p.m. at Queens Library at Briarwood, located at 85-12 Main St for kids ages 8 through 12:

“Building Your Own Comic Book”

There are many components that go into the construction of a comic book, but it all starts with a script. Behind every hero saving the day is a writer. In this workshop, you will begin to construct your own characters, and learn the basics behind crafting a comic book script that can be used to visually tell a story.

Chris Antzoulis is a New York-based poet and comic book writer with an MFA in writing from Sarah Lawrence College. His poetry has appeared in Yes Poetry, Newtown Literary, Luna Luna, FLAPPERHOUSE, decomP magazinE, Madcap Magazine, and others. He currently lives in Queens, NY, with his two evil cats and teaches creative writing at Mercy College.

One student in each class will be randomly selected to receive a free hardcover notebook to keep all their writing in!

This program is made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Free Fiction Writing Class: New York as a Character @ Queens Library at Jackson Heights | New York | United States

Attention Queens writers—both experienced and new-to-writing: free creative writing classes taught by the best in Queens!

Newtown Literary Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting prose and poetry in Queens, in partnership with Queens Library, is offering free creative writing classes.

The next class will be led by Radha Vatsal on Saturday, February 2nd from 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. at Queens Library in Jackson Heights at 35-51 81st St:

“New York as a Character”

When financier Sherman McCoy panics in the Bronx, his actions set in motion a chain of events that propels the narrative of Tom Wolfe’s The Bonfire of the Vanities. Through writing exercises and excerpts of novels set in New York, we’ll explore how place can serve not just as backdrop but as a character that grounds the narrative, provides granular details, problems to solve, obstacles and opportunities. New York City will be used as an example in the class, but the concept of place as a character that adds an extra dimension to storytelling applies to any location, real or imaginary.

Radha Vatsal is the author of A Front Page Affair (Library Journal, starred review, and Debut Mystery of the Month), and Murder Between the Lines (Book Riot’s 100 Must-Read Books Of US Historical Fiction) set in WWI-era New York.

This program is made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
