For youth ages 8 through 13, the week-long program will feature fun and engaging activities for those who love to write and want to improve their skills. The program will take place at the library from July 29 through August 2 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. daily.

Instructors for the class are Karen Burke and Jim Farfaglia.

Burke is a former teacher from the Oswego City School District and Farfaglia is retired from the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau.

Both have spent recent years developing their own writing as well as sharing their ideas with others by leading classes.

“We are happy to have Karen and Jim back to provide programming for young writers,” said Betty Maute, director of the Fulton Public Library.

“Writing, teaching and working with young people is a winning trio for me! I’m excited about the opportunity to spark interest in young writers and to enjoy the enthusiasm that young people bring to a new experience,” said Burke.

“It is always a pleasure to work with young people who love to write,” said Farfaglia. “Karen and I are planning an interactive program, with lots of activities to stir creative minds and inspire good writing.”

There is no fee for this program.

A snack will be served each day.

There is a limited number of slots available for the class and those interested should call 315-592-5159.

Once registered, participants will have their name put in a lottery. The class will be selected randomly from all names submitted.
