“You become a writer because you need to become a writer – nothing else.” –Grace Paley
“When my speaking voice fails me, my writing voice prevails. My hand is intimately connected to my heart.” — tslevinson
We all need to discover the power of our words and have an avenue for expression. During this lively week of camp, we start by creating personal journals, then fill them with our poetry and prose, photos, and art. To perk our inner writers, we host a visiting author, take field trips downtown, and stimulate our senses through music and tasty desserts. Other experiences include writing activities with the older campers, and giving our gift of words to the community.
A former journalist, freelancer, and university publications writer and editor, Terry S. Levinson spent the next 24 years teaching writing to kindergarten through fifth grade students in Albemarle County, Virginia. She recently retired from Blue Ridge Virtual Governor’s School for gifted students. Terry is a member of Lonesome Mountain Writers, conducts writing workshops for adults, and began teaching for Writerhouse in 2015. When not writing, she can be found around Charlottesville catching live music, or catching smallmouth bass while walking the Rockfish, Tye, and Rapidan rivers. Sailing, art, photography, politics, and community service are passions, too. Terry has served on the board of the Marty Whitlow Ovarian Cancer Research Endowment at UVA since it’s inception in 2010.
