The Trillium Writers’ Workshop is a student-run after-school program designed to celebrate and strengthen Trillium’s literary community through activities such as prompts, individual writing critiques, and guest lecturers ranging from published authors, journalists, teachers, and publishers.
Students must bring in one piece of writing which they have started within their time at the workshop to be critiqued whenever they feel they have made a significant advance in their process. In April, it is our objective to integrate one fully developed piece of writing from each Workshop member into a Trillium Writers Workshop 2011-12 compilation book.
It is traditional to begin a typical Writers Workshop meeting by choosing a prompt, writing for 5-20 minutes about it, then sharing what we have produced with our fellow Workshop members. The subsequent writing is simply too bizarre and wonderful to completely deprive the general public of. As a solution, at the end of each school week, we will democratically decide on a piece of prompt writing from the week’s Workshops that is in any way outstanding enough to represent us with, then post it on this website that night, to be replaced in one week’s time.
