On the Block Youth Writing Workshops with YCA

Teens, do you like to rap? Want some help crafting your bars? Or want some writing support?

Come ready to learn from master emcees and poets from Young Chicago Authors.

Check out our summer YCA + CPL partnership programs taking place at Chicago Public Library South Chicago and Toman Branch Libraries.

The format is different for each of the free seven-week programs for teens:

  • Some workshops are for aspiring rappers and musicians seeking a space to develop projects
  • Other workshops will help you find inspiration from your daily life to craft a story or poem

All levels are welcome and no registration is required.

This partnership is part of Chicago Public Library's 2019 Teen Summer Challenge: We Are Chicago: Your City, Your Summer, Your CPL. #CPLTeens #YOUmediaYear10
