Writers' Community and Mentorship Program (CAMP)

APPLICATIONS DUE

JUNE 15

Writers' CAMP is an alternative, non-credit creative writing program for adults 
that addresses the needs of writers too challenged by time and/or financial constraints
to pursue a traditional university degree.

CAMP participants work in small cohorts and, at advanced levels, one-one-one with
professional writers to develop craft, an artistic practice and a writer's sensibility.

Specialize in fiction, poetry or creative nonfiction, or explore all these genres.

Both cash payment and work-exchange options are available to cover tuition.

Summer 2012 deadline to apply: June 15

are excited to announce Paper Explosions: Zine Camp 2012, an art and literature 
camp experience for youth ages 8 - 18.

Through Paper Explosions, your young adult will create his or her own zine, learning
the tools for written self-expression while exploring the art techniques behind 
zines and their production methods.  We are offering the camp twice: June 18 - 22
and July 16 - 20, from 1 - 4 PM. Each camp costs $150, and space will be limited.
If you act fast, your young artist could even join both weeks.

To double down on the summer art, your child can also join our partner camp Taking
It to the Streets [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001gfQP6-5FQgNq841JBOhu91JIb1Q0kpTNWe_vboMZiysC7_nOIC1MzWoBrA1V_6mT9NtMVojy1OkimNpzqOLEpIFlkrt2NSPigGCV7DmIyLS7FUiPiBYIHsm6G8tSm0rT55Av7heBhfs=]

which will happen during the same weeks from 9 AM - 12 PM.  Parents can drop off
at the Dallas Contemporary at 9AM and pick up at Oil and Cotton at 4 PM. FREE TRANSPORTATION

lunch will also be included, with produce provided by Urban Acres [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001gfQP6-5FQgNYbBSUWwlPcQ2QDKKjFe_OQSh6aeQIgrQ9YMWqAhl-kaqUrbXgLNhM-O_6WjXgq2aJe_gacZjVSMEKNcM3cfpF-AhRpF9xkOovpiisH9UPe2l3EHGsJnYD].
