Event Description
“You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories.” — Anne Lamott
In this writing camp, students will explore their lives and passions to create pieces that cross genre lines and show their TRUE selves. While reflecting on their own life experiences as well as looking into the future, students will write creatively and, ultimately, better understand themselves.
This course does not meet on Fridays.
