For the eleventh consecutive year, author and writing coach Dallas Woodburn is teaching a Ventura writing camp for youth ages 8 to 18. The camp consists of four two-hour workshops held on July 28 and 29, and August 4 and 5. There are two time slots available: 10 a.m. to noon, or 1-3 p.m. The camp will be held in the conference room at Jensen Design and Survey at 1672 Donlon St.
Students will have fun while learning how to improve components of their writing, including dialogue, characterization, plot and setting, through various creativity-inducing writing exercises. The early registration cost (before July 15) is $125 for all four sessions. Price bumps up to $150 after July 15. Students are welcome to attend one, two, three or all four sessions.
Dallas is an acclaimed author, speaker and teacher, with experience as workshop instructor and coordinator of the Young Writers Program of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference. She is a graduate of Purdue University’s Master’s program in Fiction, and most recently was a John Steinbeck Fellow in Creative Writing at San Jose State University.
