Writers' Community
and Mentorship Project
  Application Deadline: December 15
Our Writers' Community and Mentorship Project (CAMP) is an innovative professional development program that provides both BFA & MFA-level study with service learning opportunities for poets, writers, and playwrights. 
Learn more about CAMP and apply here:
"I can honestly say The Writer's Garret Community and Mentorship Project changed my life. You see, this remarkable project opened my eyes to possibilities I had not yet dreamed about. And I am privilieged to pay it forward not only in the local community but in the community at large. A senior citizen tells me he always wanted to be a writer. He'd like to start a blog about retirees, but thinks he's too old. Oh, but you're not, I tell him. Just go for it. Take a class. Take a chance. You might find your life changing, too. Just like mine has at age 73."
