AWCS Youth Programs
CLUBS AND MORE!
Reality Is Optional Kids’ Writing Club (RIO) – Enjoy writing through games and collaborate like you’ve never done before. Get wild and weird with others who love writing as much as you do. Play with your words! All grades! All levels!
Novelmancers Novel Writing Club – Heading out on a long project can be hard, but it’s made easier with friends. If you’re serious about writing and want to get finished that novel, screen play, graphic novel, long form poetry or anything in between, join us and lighten the load. We explore all aspects of writing, critique and problem solve, and try out different ways of writing.
Rogue Poets Poetry Club – Explore what poetry can be, then take it past those limits. Join Em Williamson, on a journey to the outer edges of poetry. Rogue Poets regularly have the opportunity to perform on stage as a group or individually (optional).
The Rogue Poets meet the first and third Tuesday of every month from 5:00 – 6:30. Grades 7-12. Sept-June. Free with Club Pass or register for Rogue Poets exclusively. Registration only available May – December
Dungeons & Dragons Role Playing Game Club – Enjoy fantasy? Want to live it? Then join us for this epic and wildly creative game called Dungeons and Dragons. Battle monsters, solve puzzles, find treasure and learn to work in a team while telling and experiencing your story together.
Club Pass – Going to more than two clubs? Get a club pass and save money! Club passes last a full year from the time you get it. GET ONE TODAY
MEMBERS EVENTS – Created by the youth themselves, these fun Saturday nights may include anything from a party, movie night, video game tournament, or something else. Free for members. $5 for non-members
AWCS YOUTH COUNCIL – Do you want to influence how the AWCS Youth programs are run? Do you want to help them continue to become a thing of greatness? Join us on the steering committee, not only does it look good on your resume/scholarship application, but it is also a wonderful way to support your youth writing community. (contact Kim Firmston for more information email@example.com)
AWCS YOUTH IN THE COMMUNITY – A couple of times a year our youth are encouraged to join larger projects where we partner with other creative community groups. In the past, we have worked with Rocket House on the International Children’s Festival, Ramsay Robots on BeakerHead, and Calgary Reads for Reading Week, among others. It’s a great way to get some cool stuff on your resume! Contact Kim Firmston to find out what we have in store and how to get involved. firstname.lastname@example.org
TAKE PART IN WRITING AN E-ZINE (electronic magazine) – four times a year our youth programs come out with an electronic magazine on our website www.realityisoptional.com. Club members and students are encouraged to send in their art, writing, ads, photography, poetry, stories, novel excerpts, and whatever else they have created. We are always looking for new stuff! You can submit online or in person at one of our club meetings.
