1-Day Creative Writing “Camp” for Adults (Fri. Aug. 18)

Note: Completely different June & July Sessions are also available!

Each hour in this fun, day-long, creative writing “camp” for adults, we’ll explore different aspects of writing and the writing life. We’ll write together, and we’ll enjoy 2 camp-wide/keynote sessions and 12 breakout sessions/workshops led by noted teachers and authors to explore craft, professional development, and writerly fun.

The day will conclude with a 5 p.m. Writers Happy Hour, where you can mingle with fellow writers as well as Muse students, teachers, and friends.
