You've always longed to be a writer...
Writer's Garrett

June, 2010

You've always longed to be a WRITER . . .

SO, are you ready to get ready?

Chances are that you know someone who writes lots of "letters to the editor," has
an unfinished book tucked away in a drawer, or "waxes poetic" every Valentine's
Day. Maybe this friend or family member was a passionate English major in college,
won all the writing contests in high school, and / or consumes every book on the
shelf!  If that frustrated someone is a person you know or even IS you, then the
Writers' Community and Mentorship Project (CAMP) just might be the ticket.

We provide that very special literary connection not found anywhere else in North
Texas. We also now opportunitie for long-distance learners who live elsewhere. Check
our our calendar page []
for on-line course offerings.

Is Writers' CAMP right for you?
Writers' Community and Mentorship Project (CAMP)
is a non-credit creative writing program founded by the late Jack Myers, former
Texas Poet Laureate and SMU Professor, to cultivate local literary talent and promote
a supportive environment.
Writers' CAMP offers a unique combination of structure and flexibility for writers
who crave intensive study in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, or playwriting,
but who may not have the time or money to pursue a fine arts degree.
We provide two levels of study--Artist and Professional--and one community that
would love to have you as a member.

CAMP writers pay for tuition either directly with cash or through "Work Exchange"
(WE), depending upon the need of the applicant and of our community. This unique
community component directly links you with other writers and The Writer's Garret
in our common goal of making Dallas and North Texas a better place to live.


If you want to learn more about Writers' CAMP or our other community-based programs,
classes, and events, check out our website.  []We
have lots to offer the serious, and the casual, lover of reading and writing.
