Calling all adult writers. When was the last time you spent a whole weekend stretching your creative muscles? At the JustWrite Writers’ Weekend, you’ll get the chance to practice your writing and network with the following published authors: Mark Kozub, Barbara North, Janice MacDonald and Randy Williams. The weekend also includes yoga, entertainment, and the YouthWrite 20th Anniversary Celebration and Gala on July 1. The deadline to apply to join this weekend camp is June 15.

The YouthWrite 20th Anniversary Celebration and Gala, held July 1, 7 – 10 pm, will showcase multiple youth creative forms — including music, poetry, comedy and visual art — and documentary clips of alumni, instructors, and campers filmed at our 2015 camp. Our Coordinator will speak to the history and importance of YouthWrite and guests will be invited to network and reminisce over food and refreshments.

JustWrite: a camp for adults who love to write. YouthWrite: a camp for kids who love to write … just about anything.
