Scribble Away: A Creative Writing Camp for Parents (IN-PERSON)

In an attempt to fill a career development gap and provide professional peer support for writers with children aged 9-13, this in-person, day camp will include writing time, story mapping, group discussions, query exercises, and one-on-one consultations. Children can be enrolled in the Scribes Camps currently taking place onsite during the same time as this writing intensive for adults only. Each day will have a one-hour break for lunch.

This class may be moved online for some or all sessions depending on the COVID-19 public health guidelines and Hugo House’s current in-person program policy. We are monitoring the situation daily. Hugo House prioritizes the health of our students and staff.
