EPIC Group Writers and the Edmonds Art Commission are presenting another free writing workshop for teens on Saturday, October 10. 4 to 11 a.m., this time with award-winning young author Ellen Hopkins.

These one-hour workshops will take place on Zoom.

Hopkins is a poet, freelance writer, and author of over 20 non-fiction and fiction books. She has also published hundreds of articles on topics ranging from aviation to child abuse to viticulture. Hopkins is a regular speaker at schools, book festivals, and writers’ conferences in the United States and around the world.

All teens are invited to join this fun and interactive character creation writing session. Teens will need to register in advance using the link on the EPIC website or the QR Code.

Alison Ersfeld, an English teacher at Meadowdale High School and member of the EPIC Board of Trustees, received a grant from the Edmonds Arts Commission to strengthen the mission of EPIC Group Writers to create and maintain a community of writers of all levels and backgrounds. This grant allows EPIC to host a series of writing workshops for adolescents, facilitated by published authors.

Upcoming workshop guests include Washington State Book Awards poet finalist Ebo Barton on November 6, and later in November, songwriter, singer and musician Jon Muq.
