Scholarships Available for Creativity Camp

WOTA is pleased once again to provide scholarships to those interested in attending this year’s Creative Writing Camp, held June 7 – 9 at Langwood Education Center in Grandview, IA, and hosted by the Society of Great River Poets.

Creative Writing Camp is designed to give adults 18 or older a stimulating, instructive weekend in a beautiful natural setting that will exercise the writing muscles and replenish the creative well. Activities begin Friday night with stargazing and story-telling and continue through workshops on Saturday and Sunday that address different aspects of the writing craft.

Registration fee is $15 for Friday, $30 for Saturday, $30 for Sunday, or $60 for all three days. Email SGRP to register now or gather more information; use the form below to apply for a scholarship. Scholarship amounts of up to $60 per person are available.

Though you’re not required to stay on-site, accommodations are included in the registration fee. Choices include an A-frame dormitory-style lodge with twins beds, a central shelterhouse with full kitchen, and campsites with and without electricity. There are plumbed bathrooms with shower and AC in the shelterhouse where workshops take place. Recreational opportunities include hiking, boating, bird-watching, and telling tall tales around the campfire.
