Bored Already? Creative Youth Write Their Way Into Adventure

Imagine a world of possibilities! Creative writing is play and imagination becomes real at the Shire Literary Center for Youth.

Opening this summer in the classroom space of ArtReach St. Croix, the Shire provides a safe place for students ages 9 to 15 to challenge themselves, spark their imaginations, and learn about the art of storytelling.

Create your own comics, express your deepest thoughts through poetry, or write a novel in (gulp) a month. Do you have a passion for creative expression? Develop it at the Shire and connect with other students who find joy in writing.

The Shire is a collaborative effort in the St. Croix Valley to build a dynamic and vibrant literary community for youth.
