Let the Crazy Child Write -- Feather River Art Camp


Feather River Adult Art Camp, June 20-27, 2010
Quincy, Plumas Co., CA

Cost: $769.00

We'll look at "Flash Fiction" and how it can inform your writing in any genre. Bring a blank notebook and a writing project for a productive, exciting week. We'll meet every morning for three hours, share our writing from the day before, have writing walks and meditations in the afternoons. And you may want to enjoy other workshops - pottery, paper making, landscape painting, gourd making, Chinese watercoloring - or go hiking, horseback riding, swimming, or play table tennis. We'll wrap up with a reading for the whole camp on the final night.
