WriteCamp is a free workshop and networking event for local word nerds.

WriteCamp reaches out to local writers


The Milwaukee Writers Workshop will launch WriteCamp, the first free writing conference of its kind in the Midwest, on June 6, at Mercy Hill church at The Hide House, 2625 S. Greeley St.

The free event runs from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and offers a day of writing workshops, presentations, networking opportunities and food. Keynote speakers include writers Mike Magnuson and Karolis Gintaras Zukauskas. Plus, all participants are invited to present their ideas during open sessions.

Writers can attend the entire event or a portion of the 13-hour WriteCamp.

"We are excited to bring WriteCamp to Milwaukee," says Milwaukee Writers Workshop founder James Boone Dryden.

"There is a void of free writing resources in our region, and writecamp addresses that void by bringing together writers from multiple genres to share ideas, network and hone their craft in a friendly, collaborative environment."

If a comment posting expert is needed I volunteer. Or if you need a guest speaker I could read my essay entitled "PS3 Sixaxis Controllers vs. Keyboards: A New Quill for a New Age?"

Thank you, OnMilwaukee, for putting this up. It means a lot to me to have such strong support and positive press for this event. The Milwaukee Writers Workshop has worked hard to get where it is, and WriteCamp is our culmination of that hard work.
