Imagine Our Story

Imagine Our Story - Summer Programming at Pima County Public Library

Imagine Our Story

We invite you to tell the story of you, your friends, and family.

What are you doing that’s creative this summer? Create a recording, video, painting, drawing, or photo. Write a story, poem, or hybrid work. Doesn’t matter the medium, what matters is telling the world your story. Submit your Stories and join in any of the workshops, groups, or events!

Your Art & Stories

Your choice of ‘Stories’ is as wide as your imagination.

Create visual art or photographs, write a short story or poetry, write a story about yourself, make music, interview a friend or family member about an experience, or film a book trailer or other video project.

We will showcase submissions on our website, YouTube, and Flickr pages.

Teen Writing Group

Pop: Write On is a teen writing group for ages 14–18. This dynamic experience is an opportunity to grow your expressive arts portfolio.

Zoom into a group of teen writers (age 14-18) every Saturday, 11 am-12 pm in June and July.

The group will facilitated by Marge Pellegrino, the Library’s summer’s Writer in Residence.
