SUMMER CAMP FOR KIDS & TEENS-
Swimming, movies, bare-footing…get random, go crazy, chill out. And, of course, write about it. With on-your-feet theater games and fun writing exercises we build language skills, develop point of view, and uncover writing fluidity. We encourage taking risks, being messy, day dreaming, and being playful. Dive into creativity with swimming, movies, and popsicles! Whether you love writing or hate writing, in our workshops, you’ll catch the writing bug.
Whether you have a project in full swing, a seedling of an idea, or true terror of the blank page, we’ll find the keys to unlock the next door in your process. Workshops are designed to inspire clarity, strength, and optimism. Workshops are open to adults of all skill levels

“My son had a great experience at writing camp. Marnie and Sascha exceeded my expectations, stretched his imagination, and the final presentation was amazing.” –Stephanie, mother (Ivanhoe Elementary)
‘”My girls (ages 10 and 13) have participated in four different Writer’s Workshops. At the end of each session, they have come home with books filled with original stories, skits, drawings and songs. Sascha and Marnie create a safe and fun environment for the children while coaxing out the wild and wonderful creativity that every child has.” –Michelle, mother (Immaculate Heart)
The workshop is spectacular, encouraging, and full of positive energy. It helped me to be a better author because they teach you different techniques every class, and they help you find your strengths and weaknesses. When you find your weakness, they help you improve. When you find your strength, they help you get even better! This is a fun filled place, and I would highly recommend it!” -Oona, Age 12 | Larchmont Charter
“One of the best camps I’ve ever been to. The teachers and students were friendly. I had a blast. They let me roam free with the power of writing!” —Rafa, Age 8 | Mt. Washington Elementary
