420 Characters Tiny Story Lab

Curious about what it takes to write a 420 Character Tiny Story? Need some inspiration to get started? Or maybe you’ve tackled the Tiny Story before and just need some feedback. Join us at our weekly 420 Tiny Story Labs starting September 20 from 2-4 pm for everything you need to know about getting started (or finishing) your 420 Character Story. The Story Lab will take place in the Teen Room at the Powell River Public Library. Teens (ages 14+) and adults are welcome to participate in the tiny story lab.
