Brantford Book Camp (for Kids and Adults)

Here's a little news about the astounding Book Camp (for kids) and Summer Writing Workshops (for adults), founded by Marsha Skrypuch, and held every summer in Brantford, Ontario:

Brantford will be holding its 4th annual Book Camp for kids this coming August.
We have upped the maximum age of participants to 14 from 12 because we have so many kids who want to return each year. In past years, we've had kids come from Oshawa, Kitchener, Hamilton and Toronto.
And this is the second year for our Summer Writing Workshops. These workshops are for published and aspiring writers over the age of 16. Last year, participants came from Washington State and Winnipeg, as well as within driving distance of Brantford. Two of our unpublished participants from last year have since received book contracts. We have upped the enrollment from 16 to 24 and have tripled the number of workshop leaders. If you know of anyone who might be interested in attending either of these writing workshops, please pass on this link:

I'd like to add you can also check out Marsha's website at (it's in the list in the sidebar, too).
