Summer Academy Camps
Creative Writing 2
Summer Academy registration is ongoing, and spots are filling up!
Brought to you by popular demand, come workshop a story in a sanctuary among other young writers. Submit between 2-5 thousand words of your literary endeavor, whether it’s a captivating short story, the opening chapters of a novel, or a collection of evocative poems and flash fiction. Brace yourself for an immersive experience as your work undergoes the discerning eyes of two professional authors, offering critiques that will sculpt your narrative into a polished gem. In addition to a personal workshop with one of the instructors, you’ll be sorted into writing groups to learn firsthand how experienced authors collect feedback and use it in meaningful ways to make changes to their stories. At the end of the week, you’ll have a workshopped piece revised and polished for our class anthology. This immersive experience is where your stories come to life, guided by the wisdom of professionals and the collective energy of your fellow wordsmiths.
