Writers' Community And Mentorship Program (CAMP)
EARLY BIRD APPLICATIONS DUE
TODAY

Writers' CAMP is an alternative, non-credit creative writing program for adults 
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

ONLY 2 SEATS REMAINING
In Award-Winning Author
PAUL BLACK's Novel Workshop

"Hey, What's the Big Idea?": Getting Your Novel from Concept to Reality

Wednesdays, May 9 - 23

7 - 9 PM

So you got this big idea, eh? Or do you? It's the most important thing in writing,
even more than writing itself, but it's hard to know if it's good or not. National
awarding-winning fiction author, Paul Black, reveals the secrets to developing the
initial concept. Students will learn how to research and hone their idea, develop
a great log-line, dissect the good from the bad, vet their concept and outline their
story.

PAUL BLACK has been a professional creative for more than 20 years. As a creative
and design director in advertising, his work has been recognized by nearly every
major competition and periodical. As a novelist, his trilogy series, The Tels, 
won Writer's Digest's Book of the Year for Genre Fiction, along with gold and silver
medals from ForeWord Magazine and was also a finalist in the Independent Publisher's
Book Award for Science Fiction. His latest book, The Presence, won the 2011 gold
medal for science fiction in the same competition. You can check out all of Paul's
work at his author site: www.paulblackbooks.com [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001pmEbdWTEWnH8Fw0eyEQkLwQ8q-S3P3Y_d0DzgNIL9HjIAJVQfiNCBGq7wGpr-as1g495hVyp_ms-EbWxjwisVsq5VsChOaJEJXu5zuqbPmUmwz9MlzOqrJ3bLOrX0OzX].

The Landscape Thinks in Me:
Conjuring the Spirit of Place in Poetry
with Award-Winning Poet
CYRUS CASSELLS

Saturday, May 12, 2012

10 AM - 5 PM

Through in-class exercises, sharing of student pieces, and discussion of insights
by writers and artists as diverse as William Blake, Elizabeth Bishop, Sandra Cisneros,
Dante, Cesare Pavese, and Georgia O'Keefe, this lively, one-day workshop is designed
to bolster your ability to recreate beloved landscapes and sacred ground that have
the stamp of your individuality. How do places in our poems serve both as sites 
of communion and as self-portraits?

CYRUS CASSELLS is the author of four acclaimed books of poetry: The Mud Actor, Soul
Make a Path through Shouting, Beautiful Signor, and More Than Peace and Cypresses.
His fifth book, The Crossed-Out Swastika, and a translation manuscript, Still Life
with Children: Selected Poems of Francesc Parcerisas, are forthcoming. Among his
honors are a Lannan Literary Award, a William Carlos Williams Award, a Pushcart
Prize, two NEA grants, and a Lambda Literary Award.
