Come get your biannual dose of inspiration at Creativity Camp, held this year from Friday, June 15 to Sunday, June 17 at Langwood Education Center in Grandview, IA. Full details will be available soon on the Society of Great River Poets website, but here’s the skinny:
Workshops will cover everything from plot, the short story, and using your senses to water color painting, yoga, and more. There will be plenty of opportunities for break-out writing sessions, strolling through the woods for inspiration, and even paddling on the pond. Day workshops will be followed by shared meals and the chance to share stories around the campfire.
Accommodations are available in a rustic lodge, with shower and plumbed toilet facilities. There are also hookups available for campers (extra $10 charge). There is a kitchen, including refrigeration, available in the main lodge for your food.
Cost is as follows: Friday $15, Saturday workshops $30, Sunday workshops $30, or three-day package for $60. You are invited to apply for a scholarship of up to $60 to attend workshops (lodging and food provision will be your own responsibility). Please note that this is an adults-only weekend; participants must be 18 or older.
Apply for a scholarship here, or send an email with questions. Priority will be given to dues-paying members of WOTA and SGRP, but anyone with an interest in cultivating their creativity is welcome to apply. Successful applicants will be notified by May 30. Hope to see you there!
