Do you love to write or want to learn while hanging out with other teen writers? This is the place to be! What can you write? Anything you want. Poetry, a zombie romance, your life story as told by your dog, whatever. Share your stories and poetry, ask for feedback, and get ideas. 

Need a kick in the butt to keep the words flowing? That's what writing buddies are for.
