Squash and Creative writing 

Date: July 15-20

Age: 13-16

Do you have an idea for a short story? Have you always wanted to write poetry? Or do you have a screenplay partially written, and you’re looking for the feedback and time that will help you push through until the end? If so, Squash and Creative Writing is a workshop offers campers and intensive way to both train for the squash season and embark on or finish a writing project in a week.

Squash and Creative Writing campers spend much of their time putting pencil to paper– or fingers to keyboard– and learn how to share their work with each other in productive ways. The workshop is headquartered at Williams College’s Paresky Center, just above the dining hall, but takes advantage of other inspiring, writing-friendly venues within walking distance of the squash courts and dormitory.

Although they’ll spend two hours a day of writing and critiquing, Squash and Creative Writing campers will engage in the same squash training and social activities as those who are at Squash and Beyond solely to play squash. At the end of the week, they’ll return home with some good writing in addition to sharpened squash skills and increased fitness.
