Come along as we adventure under the trees and along the lakeshore, writing and learning about local and global environmental issues. You'll also have the opportunity to learn to make a short documentary film, gather for evening readings and music, and, on the last evening, read or screen your own work. Included in your enrollment is one writing workshop, two environmental excursions, the film workshop, and all evening events. Box lunches are provided each day to take out on the excursions and workshops. Our evening events are open and free to the public. We hope you'll join us!
