Thinking...WoolfCamp Writers Workout...
Originally uploaded by George Marcellino.
...Memorial Day Weekend? Or weekend of June 10 and 11? Again, at Chez George and Grace, Santa Cruz?
This would NOT be in lieu of the proposed WoolfCamp Topanga Canyon, Fall 2006. I want to create another weekend where we practice writing. Like:
* the stream of consciousness stuff
* writerly exercises where we can kick off a piece with the same prompt - "The only thing I ever wanted was..." OR "tell a story based on this photograph/painting/still life..." OR "Your topic today is 'crazy'. Write anything about it."
* Collaborative story telling
Campers will read their favorite stuff after dinner.
Geeks/visual artists/knitters are welcome, of course; but the commitment and workshops will be oriented towards writing.
Both genders, all skin colors, your kiddos, any sexual orientation, good dogs are welcome.
This (and, hopefully, all) WoolfCamps will be based on the principles of open source gatherings. 'Safe space' guidelines will be developed and promoted. (See my thoughts on these ideas right here.)
Yeah, we'll dance. I'm thinking this time we can celebrate the late, great Curtis Mayfield and dance to Superfly!
So, Campers, wanna play?
