Writing at John C. Campbell Folk School

Be sure to check out the line up of writing classes at the John C. Campbell Folk School this summer.
Vicki Hunt is teaching in July. I have taken a week long class with Vickie and I know she is a good instructor. Visit the website: www.folkschool.org and look for writing classes. Many good writers will teach there this year.

Writing Life Stories
Date: Sunday, July 1 - Friday, July 6, 2018
Subject: Writing
Instructor: Vickie Hunt

Make headway creating short stories, essays, or memoir chapters from events in your life. Focus on writing strong openings, creating scenes, establishing setting and characters, building momentum, shaping syntax, and coming to a graceful ending. Create and revise several short pieces and attempt a draft of a longer piece. Examine the subtle differences in creative nonfiction, autobiographical fiction, and personal essay. All levels welcome.

More about Vickie:

Vickie received her Ph.D. in English from Florida State University and currently teaches creative writing at Northwest Florida State College. She has also taught at the Folk School since 1999.

Vickie's work has appeared in "The Chattahoochee Review," "Appalachee Quarterly," "BOMB Magazine," and elsewhere, including the anthology, "Every Woman I've Ever Loved." She is currently at work on her memoir, "Whatever She Wants."

--Nancy Simpson

The new writing studio is located on the grounds
at Orchard House, John C. Campbell Folk School (JCCFS)in Brasstown, North Carolina. The school itself is 83 years
old, world famous for devotion to arts and crafts The writing program only 13 years old, but the writing studio is brand spanking new.

Recently, I had an opportunity to teach the first class in the new studio, with state of the art computers, printer,copier, and all a writer would need including paper, paper.

My feet hardly touched ground all week as I watched my students working. Each had a writing space with their own computer and printer set up. We had an oval table to use for critiquing sessions, and we had the living room of Orchard House to sprawl out and relax in for teaching sessions and class discussions.

I’ve been teaching writing at the folk school for years,but I have never before seen such a large amount of writing started and finished in one week. The school itself, with sparks of creative energy popping, is a magical place to begin with. The new studio is a welcoming and conducive place for writers.

I invite you to come write with us for a week. If you have already taken writing classes at the folk school,come back as soon as you can. You may walk on air as
I have been doing. You will write, I promise.

If you have never been to the folk school, give it serious thought. Get a catalog, read the class descriptions,make your choice. Scholarships are available based on
financial need . The school offers half price to those living in specific mountain counties. Call the toll free number,check out the web site or e mail me with your questions at nance@dnet.net. Phone. 1800 FOLK-SCH.
