SUMMER WORKSHOPS 2015!

The Writing Week: Prepare to brainstorm, people-watch, dig deep and be silly! We will write in groups and alone. We will concentrate on both the joy and craft of creative writing while discovering worlds in and outside of ourselves. A special guest author or artist will visit each group for a dynamic creative presentation of Wednesday of each week. "A" workshops take place from 10am-1pm; "B" workshops take place from 2-5pm.

Drop off and pick up: All summer workshops will be held in the writing room upstairs at Richmond Young Writers: 2915 #2 W. Cary St. (Google map: http://tinyurl.com/qd7372o Please plan to enter via the purple RYW door -and pick up upstairs, inside of Chop Suey Books. If you need to make other arrangements or if you know your child will be walking or biking to/from class, please let us know in advance!
