Penned by Western (Penned) is a creative writing club at Western University that welcomes all writers in every part of their journey. We believe that everyone has a story that deserves to be told and our goal is to make the warmest, most welcoming environment to help you to discover, create, and grow in your writing. Penned hosts weekly events, which include workshops, sharing sessions, and socials. Our workshops are designed for both new and experienced writers. They feature an introduction of the topic of the week, literary techniques, writing prompts, time to share, and the chance to receive feedback on your work. We host intra-university open mics, poetry slams, writer talks, and many more events! We also facilitate and showcase many opportunities throughout the year for you to share and publish your wonderful pieces. If you have any questions, concerns or would like to see more about who we are, feel free to visit our Instagram (@pennedbywestern), check out our website or shoot us an email! We are beyond excited to be a part of your writing journey!
