What is CAMP?
The Writers' Community and Mentorship Project (CAMP) is an innovative course of study that pairs your personal development as a writer with the artistic network that provides the support you need.
Though a semi-directed course of study that includes classes, workshops, readings, discussions, mentoring, and professional development activities, writers receive the resources to exercise their accountability, build their practice, and hone their craft.
While writing may be a solitary act, you will not be alone. CAMP writers dedicate themselves to building a vital artistic community rooted in the principles of collaboration and the mutual support that only writers and readers can lend to each other.
CAMPers have studied directly with established writers and poets such as Robert Olen Butler,Yusef Komunyakaa, Kaye Gibbons, Chris Cleave, Li-Young Lee,
Jimmy Santiago Baca, Michael Martone, Sydney Lea, Allison Hedge Coke, Tim Seibles, Victoria Redel, and many others.
