DebSWSP        For writers ages 7-107

Could there be any better writing inspiration than the natural beauty of South Whidbey State Park? It’s one of my favorite places, and I’m looking forward to sharing it with you as Calyx School {the ranger’s house) hosts us on select Fridays this fall. South Whidbey State Park is located on Smuggler’s Cove Road, and Whidbey’s free bus service (Island Transit Route #1) can take you there and back from points north or south on the island, including the Mukiteo-Clinton ferry.

Eight Friday Sessions: Sept. 19, 26, Oct. 10, 17, 31, Nov. 7, 14, & Dec.5



Story Stream Grades 2-6, 5-12 students 9:00—9:45 $75

Whether the stories we’ll write are from memory or imagination, they never appear on paper the way they are in our minds. We’ll explore ideas, structure, word choice, dialog, story arc, and ways to keep the flow going as we write, revise, critique, and share our stories.


Poetry Magic Grades 3-8, 5-12 students 9:45—10:30 $75

In poetry, every word counts, and the skills acquired from writing poetry apply to all writing. We’ll explore imagery, form, style, and word choice. Transforming inspiration into poetry to publish and perform is like making magic.


Real Writing with Real Results Grades 4-10, 6-10 students, 10:30—12:00 $105

You’ll design your own assignments in this class with support. Real writers choose their topics and find the right voice and format for what they want to say. We’ll explore multiple writing genres and methods in a setting that is as real as it gets. This workshop will help provide you with the modeling, guidance, and confidence you need to call yourself a writer.    


Park & Write Adults, 5-8 participants, 12:30—3:00 $245

Wouldn’t you love a weekly designated writing time inspired and supported by others writing alongside you? After a round of “check ins” and discussing topics such as generating ideas, revising, publishing, or others brought up by the group, that longed-for writing time is yours. We’ll close with goal sharing to help keep you motivated, confident, and accountable. Don’t you deserve that?
