The Writer’s Garret and… zines!

I had an awesome time at The Writer’s Garret open house yesterday!

Yes, but you may be wondering…

  1. 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.   🙂
