This mini retreat is for writers of all levels. Come to discuss elements of point of view, learn how to create sympathetic characters, find ways to break out of old writing habits, and consider new ways to approach universal writing challenges. Think of this as agility training for your writer’s mind. Attendees will listen to brief (painless) talks, participate in a few (fun) improv exercises, respond to (inspirational) writing prompts, write (brilliant) paragraphs of their own and (kindly) critique each other’s work. **This session will take place at the facilitator’s home, a location near Albemarle High School. The address and directions will be provided to students who register for this session.
