• Ink Blot offers students an opportunity to share and improve their creative writing skills in a community that provides both support and camaraderie. The club meets during lunch and discusses aspects of the craft, such as characterization and dialogue. In addition, it encourages members to share their work so the group can provide constructive criticism as well as one-on-one editing. A highlight of the year is National Novel Writing Month, although poetry and short fiction are just as eagerly received as novels within the club context. Students who are a little more adventurous with their writing are alerted regularly about contest opportunities. As a bonus, the analytical skills developed as a result of participation in Ink Blot are useful in curricular essays.
