The Writer’s Den is a group of UCLA students who enjoy creative writing as both an academic and a recreational pursuit and are aware of the shortage of creative writing opportunities available to students in Los Angeles schools.
The Writer’s Den has two main goals:
To provide a forum for creative writers – Once a week during meetings, members come together and share their creative writing with one another. Students are given an opportunity to share their work with other students and hear honest feedback– no application process, just communication between fellow writers.
To teach creative writing to high school, middle school, and elementary school students – Once a week we go to Fairburn Elementary School, Columbus Middle School, and John R. Wooden High School. We believe creative writing is an important medium in allowing students to express their feelings and exercise their imaginations. At the end of the year, we give the students a tour of the UCLA campus and a bounded compilation of their class’s works.
