Thanks for your interest in attending PageSlayers Summer Camp 2019!
PageSlayers is a 2016 Knight Arts Challenge Winner bringing free creative writing workshops to Opa-locka, Florida. We began in summer 2017, and we're back for 2018! Each of the two, three-week sessions takes place at Thrive (780 Fisherman Street, 2nd Floor, Opa-locka, FL 33054) and employs published, professional writers of color.
At the end of the sessions, a free reading and exhibition will be held on-site for the campers to perform an original piece of writing for an audience of friends, family, and the community. By sharing their work through performance and publication, we hope to build literary communities not only in Opa-locka, but Miami as a whole.
This year we’re doing things a bit different and we’ll only be having one session in an effort to build a deeper sense of community. Interested in applying? CLICK HERE.
There is one session to choose from:
June 17-July 19*
8 a.m.-1 p.m.
*We will be off on July 4th & 5th
Each session can only accept 20 students total. We will provide campers with breakfast and lunch every day, as well as writing utensils, paper, notebooks, and one camp T-shirt (if funds allow).
