Kid's Writing & Illustrating Un-Workshop this November

About a year ago (plus a month) we hosted a fun Writing & Illustrating Workshop for kids. We had planned to host another this summer but... things are not normal this year. So during the month of November we are hosting a month-long writing and illustrating UN-Workshop. We're calling  it  


That’s short for Kids’ Book Writing Month. And we're inviting all kids in 4th grade through high school who tell stories, draw comics, and write novels! 

Instead of meeting at the library, participants get a take-away unworkshop kit. Inside each KidBooWriMo kit is almost everything you need to write and illustrate a book:

  • a packet of Story Seeds (just add imagination)
  • a month’s worth of writing and illustrating ideas
  • templates for creating a graphic novel
  • a pencil good for a few thousand words

KidBooWriMo kits are free. Starting Monday, October 26 you may drop by and pick one up. Or, if you can't get to the library, call the library at 607-659-7258 and reserve a KidBooWriMo kit.

This program is made possible by a grant from the Bernard Carl and Shirley Rosen Library Fund of the Community Foundation of Tompkins County.
