Livingston Literaries: A Group for Teens is a space for teen writing enthusiasts. We dedicate our weekly meetings to workshopping works-in-progress, doing writing exercises, working on writing skills with the guidance of local writers, and more.  Snacks provided!

Livingston Literaries meets every first, third, and fifth Wednesday of the month, 4:30-5:30 p.m. at the Livingston-Park County Public Library (in the Bev Steveson meeting room on the ground floor) and on Zoom. Email for more information or for the Zoom link. 

Livingston Literaries is a free program of Elk River Arts & Lectures, a nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating Livingston’s literary legacy and building community through the literary arts.

We are now accepting submissions of writing and artwork for the second issue of THINK, the literary zine of Livingston Literaries. The theme is childhood.

In Participants’ Own Words

“Livingston Literaries is a delightful environment to share my writing in. I always look forward to going to the library and talking over our stories, ideas, and more.”

“I think that being able to talk with other writers and being able to work with them is a good way to improve my writing.”

“It has a great, friendly atmosphere. And it keeps me wanting to write!”

“I enjoyed learning about memory and their role they play in Craig’s writing style, as well as the exercises we did! It was also great to hear from someone who’s published—a goal of mine.”
