Creativity lies in the minds of those with passion, determination, and the ability to think outside the box. Within the Marian community, creativity is sought through the art of writing.  To these students, writing is more than just words on a paper, but rather a way to cope with the ongoing stresses of the teenage life. Writer’s society has engaged this group of students to build a more colorful mind.

For students who attend these meetings are involved with creative writing outside of the classroom, and experience the unique writing styles from fellow piers. This club acts as a stress reliever to some with the hope of letting their weekly frustrations become nothing but a good story.

Every other Friday afternoon, a small group of students meet after school and debate about their next writing topic. After finally agreeing on a topic, which could be a word or phrase, all stress is put aside and they focus on the paper laying in front of them. Once everyone is done writing, students share their writing in front of each other. Mrs. Radcliffe, Writers Society host, says her favorite thing about this club is listening to what these students have to write about outside of class.

However, Writers Society offers more than just the writing aspect, it offers the safety of self expression. Senior Sarah Zabala, Writers society President says “I look forward to this club because I get to hang out with great people, increase my writing knowledge and of course, express my creative side.” Through writing, students are able to express themselves, expand their creativeness and become more imaginative. Writer’s society has become more than just a club, but a sense of community.
