The word just came in from the Loft literary center in Minneapolis that they will now be offering youth classes year-round.
This is an exceptional opportunity for emerging and aspiring youth writers to work with local and nationally acclaimed writers and they're asking people to please pass the word to parents of teens, English teachers, and anyone else about these programs.
