Write From The Heart Youth Summer Sessions
Melissa Greene, a published fiction writer, poet and professional writing coach, will lead her yearly camp for children, ages 9 to 12, on July 30, 31 and August 3, and teens, ages 13 to 17, on July 23, 24 and 27. All sessions run from 1 to 3 p.m. The workshops emphasize the wonder, excitement and fun of writing, not the rules, in a calm, stress-free environment.
Greene’s camps are slow paced and soul-centered, gentle and non-intimidating, taught in an atmosphere of compassion, warmth and humor; where young people discover inspiration in everyday surroundings, the importance of wonder and play in the creative process, and how kindness, and a touch of fun, ease perfectionism and writer’s block.
“Undistracted by technology, young people enjoy uninterrupted free writing about topics they enjoy, to inspire happier, more confident and focused writers, both in school and out,” enthuses Greene. “There are no grades, tests, or judgment.”
