Penticton Wrap-Up

BC Youth Write Camp has come to a close for 2009.

I cannot emphasize enough what a wonderful experience this was for the young writers who came to Penticton from across the province. Run by the dynamic Yasmine John-Thorpe under the auspices of Raise-A-Reader and Penticton Writers.

The kids who said good-bye yesterday headed home inspired and fired up by the experience.

Teachers -- if you teach in BC and have students who like to write -- direct them HERE next year -- they will be given a chance to take part in an experience they will never forget!

I run a writing club at one of the schools up here in Terrace, plus do at least 2 6-week workshop series for young writers every year. I will DEFINITELY promote this. Thanks for the link!
