The Algoma Public Library is inspiring young and old to improve their writing craft. Offering Teen and Adult Creative Writing Workshops monthly, the library is seeking more avid writers to participate. Braelyn Dempsey, the young adult librarian, says the classes are structured to instill the most creative writing possible. She shares the advice received during her college days.
