Explore the elements of poetry and prose in this two-week camp for word nerds!

Your days will be full of writing activities and craft exercises that will expose you to a diverse range of styles, forms, and writers. You’ll read and discuss literary classics and cutting-edge writing that’ll blow your mind; you’ll brainstorm, free-write, draft and edit your way to great stories and poems; and you’ll share your work with a community of like-minded creatives. All skill levels welcome.
