Creative Writing

July 11-15, 2022 | 9 am-3 pm

Find out how words can create images, engage the senses, inspire emotions, and invite us on journeys to new places. We’ll spend the week exploring different genres of creative writing: poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction, to exercise the old adage, “Show, don’t tell.” It has been said that writing is a muscle. Throughout the week we will flex our writing muscles with collaborative exercises, readings, prompts and journaling. Whether you are working on a research paper, high school or college admissions essay, writing an email to a teacher, or adding a new post to your blog, the value of good writing skills is endless.

Writers will find inspiration in the world around them, and we’ll chronicle our daily adventures and favorite pieces in an online literary journal.
