Did you know April is National Poetry Month? If you’re a student looking for a creative outlet, consider trying your hand at poetry—or another form of writing—as a member of Writers Writing Words. A creative writing club at CWRU, Writers Writing Words gives students from all majors and disciplines the opportunity to write for fun—whether that’s through poetry or other projects. Students are encouraged to come in with ideas or drop by for inspiration and use the organization’s tools and resources to help them advance their craft. 

The club often hosts writing workshops to help members build skills in certain areas such as writing short stories, encouraging them to share their writing projects along the way for pointers and advice. At each meeting, everyone gets free writing time to work on personal pieces alongside friends and like-minded writers.       

In addition, the group hosts a Charity Write-In each year, where students break into groups, choose a genre of writing, and write one word for every cent that is donated. Proceeds go to the Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank, and donors receive an e-book of the club’s finished product, a collection of works written by the students. 

Writers Writing Words meets every Saturday from 2 to 3:30 p.m. over Zoom. Find out how to get involved on the group’s CampusGroups page.
