Need to revamp Writing Club for GT students-- Any ideas?

Hello GT Teachers!
I am a GT teacher and teach 3/4 GT cluster class. I will be in charge of an after school Writing Club at my school. Any ideas of what to do with the GT students in a writing club? Thanks for your input!

I would focus on one genre at a time--descriptions using figurative language, poetry (haikus, sonnets, free verse, etc.), narrative stories, persuasive opinion essays, and expository research reports. For each genre, have students choose their own topics and complete each step of the writing process--planning, rough draft, revise and edit, and final draft. At the end of the year, compile their writing to be published. Have an artistic student, or the art teacher, design a cover and published their work in a school literary magazine, then sell it to other students as a fundraiser. Let the club members decide how to spend the money they raise for the school.
