Teen Night: The Art of the Short Story (ages 12–18)

24 September 2021 @ 19 h 00 min - 21 h 00 min

Work on your craft in a fun, creative atmosphere with other young writers


Novels, and short stories are distinct art forms. Together, we’ll look at examples of short stories in several genres—and from horrific to heartwarming. Each has common elements, and we will discuss them and begin our own short stories together, with time to share for those who want feedback. Each participant will leave with a list of resources for places where young writers can submit short stories, as well as information about the Library’s 2022 Young Authors Fiction Festival.


Advance registration is required for this event. Participation in teen events is free for Library members. If you are not yet a Library member, but would like to participate, please join the Library. A signed permission slip is required to attend this event.


Questions about collections and programs for teens can be sent to the Library’s Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager, Celeste Rhoads: celeste@americanlibraryinparis.org.


We thank you for your continued support and for being a part of the Library community! If you would like to support the Library, you can donate here to help sustain this vital institution in its 100th year of service.
