Columbus, Ohio – Thurber House is excited to present a brand new writing program, the Thurber House Young Writer’s Studio, targeted at 10th through 12th grade writers.

The studio is a new and fun format that will give students a chance to put aside their homework and work with professional writers. Led by freelance writer and editor Kelli C. Trinoskey, along with other local writers, students will learn new writing techniques, explore different genres, and receive feedback on their work while interacting with other teens who love writing as much as they do.

The Young Writer’s Studio will meet from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Feb. 22, March 22, April 26, and May 24 at Thurber House, 77 Jefferson Ave. The program is $25 for all four session, but the space is limited and the group is first come, first served. To register, students send an application form and payment to: Thurber House, 77 Jefferson Ave., Columbus, OH 43215. For more information, call Thurber House at 614-464-1032 or visit our Web site at
