Get to Know the Creative Writing Club

by CC CHAVEZ '24

At SUA there are many clubs, ranging from cooking to sports. There is something for everyone who wants to get involved. One of the newer student-run groups this year is the Creative Writing Club. To get to know the club and what it stands for, I interviewed the moderator, Ms. Cappel, the student leaders, Rowan Fox '25 and Dana Zimmer '24, and members Ava Meiners '24b, Kate Corsig ' 23, Bella Battle '24.


Q: Did you think a lot of people would join this club


Ms. Cappel: No, my first year there were no members and the interest in doing lit related things outside of class is very low.


Q: What inspired you to form this club?


Ms. Cappel: I really love creating opportunities to write in a way that isn't super structured and often writers are quiet people so bringing them together in a space like this is helpful.
