If You Want to Write ~ Adult Summer Camp (June)

  • Google Calendar ICS

Many of us invest time, money and schlepp-value into summer camp – for our kids. What if we did the same for ourselves? With all our regular routines thrown into disarray, summer can be a great time for us to pause and look inward.

This five-session camp is designed for people who want to begin or return to a writing practice, and would like a nudge. The camp will run for five afternoons over the course of one week. This format will help create momentum and focus. You’ll receive tools and generate material and ideas that you can take with you to expand on your own. For more information, click HERE.

Monday, June 27 – Friday, July 1
Five Afternoons 4 – 6 pm

Writing on the Water

Join Jennie and Captain Kelly Purinton for a special session of Writing from the Self. By taking our pens and paper out to the water, we will have a unique opportunity to access Self Energy. Kelly will sail us to a nearby island and pick up a mooring in a protected cove, where we'll write. There will be prompts to help us connect with deeply buried parts of ourselves, and to write these parts’ stories. (For much more information on Writing from the Self, click here.) After writing and sharing (optional), we’ll sail our way home again. Read more HERE.

Dates to be Announced
Sailing out of Paul's Marina, Brunswick
