Rocking day today in Penticton at BC Youth Write Camp -- astonishing group of young writers discussing time-travel issues, poetry, story structure. I read a poem at the end of the class written by a young writer named Sean -- totally blew me away, man. These kids are good.
Here's Lt. Governor Stephen L. Point addressing the troops yesterday.
This is the whole whack of kids joining together to celebrate the on-set of some serious wordsmithing.
And here's all the proud parents (and a few organizers) wrassling the kids into the collection above, suitable for photographing.
The lady all in black is Yasmin John-Thorpe, the brains and the energy behind the whole Youth Write BC event.
Thanks, Yasmin -- it's been a blast already!
