Creative Writing

Summer academy registration is now open
Register for the Camp

Brought to you by popular demand, come workshop a story you’ve already written! Campers can submit between two and five thousand words of a short story, a novel excerpt (must be the beginning), or a series of poems or flash fiction to be critiqued by two professional authors. In addition to a personal workshop with one of the instructors, you’ll be sorted into writing groups to learn firsthand how experienced authors collect feedback and use it in meaningful ways to make changes to their stories. At the end of the week, you’ll have a workshopped piece revised and polished for our class anthology.

You can learn more about Kaitlin and her books at KaitlinBevis.com. This is Kaitlin’s fourth year as a Summer Academy instructor.
