I had an awesome time at The Writer’s Garret open house yesterday!
Yes, but you may be wondering…
- what exactly is the Writer’s Garret?
The Writer’s Garret is a non-profit org in Dallas- you can read about their mission and goals here .
2. … and what was I (and what will I be) doing there?
I am participating in a program called CAMP, which means I will be hanging out with a bunch of aspiring writer folk and working on my writing. The most epic part is that I pay for some of my tuition through work-exchange (because, you know… student loans and college are coming…), so I will also get to learn about non-profit organizations more generally and potentially teach creative writing to the K-12 population!
I got to hear some writers talk about the classes that they are teaching this semester at the organization and share some of their writing.
And I also got started on a zine. 🙂
and speaking of zines…
