High School Writers Camp Participant Testimonials

I expected just writing and listening to people talk. What was different: I got to go outside and experience free writing and adventure, meeting people without them running away.

It was amazing. Getting and finding time to just write is difficult. Having a camp just focus on that and give time to write is exactly what I needed.
