And to toot my own horn, I am jumping into all this summer fun and offering a series of Writing Workshops on site. Check it out:
Marlais (me) Brand, Dodge teacher and writing teacher (I have some literature degrees, I've published a few things and I've led actual writing workshops for high schoolers, college students and adults).
Catalyst Summer Writing Workshops
Wear shoes and clothing suitable for hiking (Mary Karr style heels are not a good idea)
You can also
Bring a water bottle
Bring bug spray (we'll be hiking in the early evening, remember)
Bring snacks (I'll bring some too)
If you need childcare during class, we may be able to hook you up; an intrepid fellow writer of mine is trying to fund a trip abroad, just let me know in advance.
