Writing Outside the Lines


6:00 PM TO 9:00 PM

Creative writing comes in many shapes and sizes, but heading into the great outdoors for inspiration is a summer non-negotiable. We’ll put pen to paper under the setting sun as we workshop ideas for poems and postcard stories. The break between school years can often feel vast and as we move through the grades (perhaps beginning to think about university) it is often advantageous to keep our creative juices flowing. Whether you feel like a writing refresher or want to work more on a passion project, we will give our expert guidance and editing advice to all campers across the week. You can alternate between favourite forms or dip your toe in the waters of something new, safe in the knowledge that you’ll be supported every step of the way. 

As a group, we’ll write outdoors in some of Vancouver’s most picturesque spots (weather permitting), but our rainy day alternative will be to hole up in the cozy corners of the Lyceum with a hot chocolate and something sweet to eat.
