WRITING RETREAT WORKSHOPS 2012 Andrew Sean Greer | Young Writers (ages 14-18) | June 18 – 22 | 8:30am - 12noon Five-day non-juried workshop, first-come first-served, no writing sample required
Limited to 12 students
Course Description: You tell stories every day – funny stories, family stories, I-can't-believe-that-happened stories – and you retell them, changing them slightly, to make them better. And so you are already a storyteller and an editor! We will look at taking from your experience, as well as from your imagination, with exercises to make you the best storyteller you can be!
