Welcome to The Shire!
The Shire offers a place for students who love storytelling to gather both online and off to take creative writing classes, join writing clubs and step into leadership positions that support each other's artistic goals. We seek to nurture the creative spirit and interconnect youth to each other, not just in Stillwater, but also all over the world!

In this gripping interview recorded on an iPhone, Steve Snyder, author of SHOT DOWN, shares the true story of pilot Howard Snyder and the crew of the B-17 Susan Ruth after German fighters knocked it out of the sky over Belgium during World War II.
Pick one, pick two, pick three! The more you participate, the more you learn and the more you connect with other students who love to write creatively. Open to students in grades six through twelve, our storytelling opportunities will challenge you to take your creative thoughts to the next level and inspire you to become a part of a writing community.
