Adult Creative Writing Summer Camp
July 20, 2015 @ EST 9:30 am - 1:30 pm$245
A daytime writing retreat for adults to spark their creativity, experiment with techniques, and try various genres of writing. Using Writers & Books as a home base, we will explore inspiring venues for writing, including art galleries, parks and cafés. We’ll enjoy the kind of free-ranging creative writing exercises, games, and wordplay that help us figure out where our writing talents and passions lie. This experience is good for the beginning writer, or the experienced writer who can go back to “beginner’s mind” to generate new work. ELA teachers are also welcome to come get ideas! With 35 years of experience in guiding others to the joys of creative writing and authorship, the camp “counselor” has been published in poetry, fiction, and essay, has performed spoken word poetry, and has seen her dramatic works produced. Be prepared to let loose and experiment, and perhaps to dig deep in the sandbox of your soul, all while having fun—like a kid!
