About Elk River’s

Livingston literaries: A Group for Teens 

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 Wednesday, 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.

Upcoming events & projects:

Help us launch the first issue of THINK, the literary zine of Livingston Literaries! Friday, October 6 at 6 p.m. at Elk River Books (122 S. 2nd St.). THINK contributors, their friends & families, and community literary enthusiasts are welcome! 

This spring, our teen writing group, Livingston Literaries: A Group for Teens, collected artwork and writing on the theme isolation from local young people. Over the past several months, they have been hard at work turning these submissions into a literary magazine.  

The first issue of THINK is finally finished and ready to launch. We hope you will come celebrate this enormous accomplishment!

Join us on Friday, October 6 at 6 p.m. at Elk River Books (122 S. 2nd St. in Livingston). Zine contributors are invited (though not required) to read excerpts of their work, and members of Livingston Literaries will speak about the process of creating this publication. Light refreshments will be served.

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!”

Past Events

“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.”
