The Writer's Garret

10809 Garland Road, Dallas 75218

Join various members of The Writer's Garret community for an open discussion of 
one of the most vibrant genres in publishing today: Young Adult Fiction. Learn about
publishing trends, gender and race issues, censorship, and writing for teens and
twenty-somethings. We will save time to discuss your favorite books: from contemporary
romances, to urban dystopias... and even vampires, werewolves, and magicians.

This event is FREE, but donations (large or small) are accepted and deeply appreciated.

Writers' Community and Mentorship Program (CAMP)
Applications Due 04/24!

Writers' CAMP is an alternative, non-credit creative writing program that addresses
the needs of writers too challenged by time and / or financial constraints to pursue
a traditional university degree.

CAMP participants work in small cohorts and, at advanced levels, one-on-one with
professional writers to develop craft, an artistic practice and a writer's sensibility.

Specialize in fiction, poetry or creative nonfiction, or explore all these genres.

Both cash payment and work-exchange options are available to cover tuition.

Spring 2012 Early Bird deadline to apply: April 24, 2012

To learn more, visit The Writer's Garret website [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1109566482505&s=4558&e=001TI7P8FJApQsIa47d5Sn8ClCfG5eySsXGxJGoYa7ZL3rYVByuzSRJ_FBBwzXW2ixQkQWs--TpjRyk_V5FRX-64F8lEd_mRuqmPl4GRFMLb9crg-rdHOOaPl50S29vxBK6jmLLOtP-jCo=]
