Up and Writing!

The view from Rattlesnake

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be teaching at Squam Art Workshops next fall! The class is called Up and Writing and it’s designed to help you evolve from a person who daydreams about being a writer into one who actually writes. You may look at my books and see a gulf of experience between you and me, but there isn’t, really—as I mention in my first Flashwrite episode, I spent a good deal of time talking and thinking and reading and dreaming about shaping words into stories before I developed a writing practice in earnest.

How did I become a “real writer”? More to the point, how can you? Sign up for the workshop and find out! A week at Squam is an incredibly life changing experience in general—you breathe in the delicious pine-scented air, go swimming in the lake, count stars (and lose track), listen to the loons calling at night, learn a lot, get crazy inspired and make friends for keeps. Squam is the closest thing I have ever found to heaven on Earth.

Registration doesn’t open until January, but you can pre-register to save your spot. I just pre-registered for Spring 2014 and I’m over-the-moon excited. A really cool online workshop with Harriet Goodall—Gift of the Heart—just launched today as well!

    It’s so awesome that you’re teaching at a writing workshop. I would want nothing more than to go back to college and get an MFA in creative writing. I’m so busy with work and kids that it would be nice to be in an environment where I can totally concentrate on my writing. Workshops are a great alternative though.

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
