The Bumpus Writing Bucs Group


    Do you love writing?
    Do you want the time and space to write your stories and poems and novels?

    Join our after school Writing Bucs Group and…

    • Receive free instruction from a professional and working writer.
    • Develop your passion by writing for pleasure.
    • Improve your overall writing skills.
    • Improve your communication and critical thinking skills. 

    Any member from the 2018-19 will not have to apply. Only 7th and 8th graders can apply for the 10 new spots available. 

    All members must email or see Mrs. Burbridge before applying or returning for the new year. If you apply without emailing or talking to Mrs. Burbridge, you will be interviewed before admission to the group.

    Fill out this form and attach a piece of your own original writing to apply. Your writing can be anything- a poem, a short story, an essay-- anything you think shows off your writing talent. If no writing is attached your application is not complete. 

    Our writing group will meet after school every other Thursday in room A123 (Team 8-3) from 3:20-4:30 pm, starting the week of September 16. 

    Deadline to apply: September 6.
