Unleash your creativity in this one-week creative writing camp designed to get your ideas out of your head and onto the page. Through fun, dynamic exercises across poetry, prose, script-writing, and creative non-fiction, you'll come away with new stories and perspectives as well as techniques you can use to continue the writing on your own. In addition to generating your individual ideas, we'll also create collaboratively and strengthen our feedback skills as we respond to each other's work in a safe, joyful environment. The camp will culminate in an informal, celebratory reading of selections from the week's writing. Open to all levels of experience!
