Welcome Katie!

Join us in welcoming Katie Walker to our TTP team! We are really excited to have her working with us this summer, as our Creative Writing Specialist, for the summer writing camp “Write Under the Stairs.” 20150519_101003 Katie hails from Truman State University, Kirksville, Missouri, where she is studying Philosophy and English, with a minor in Spanish. She enjoys traveling and spent the Christmas holiday last year in Southern Chile.  In addition to creative writing, she also loves to attend poetry readings. Her favorite author is Bukowski. She is a native Illinois girl at heart, who enjoys spending time with her parents, younger sister, grandparents and two chocolate labs! Looking forward to her warm spirit, diverse languages, and confident way of instructing and leading youth group sessions, all while having fun. You can find Katie blogging here as she writes with us this summer.



We are busy preparing for our 7th summer of summer writing camps for students grades 4th – 7th.  Last year our Screenplay Writing track was such a success with performances held at The Catlow that we are bringing it back this year.  We’ve also extended each class by one hour to give students a little more writing time.  Each class is now 3 hours.   Please join our mailing list so you don’t miss the registration period.  Read through the class summaries and then take a look at the class schedule.  Ready to select now?  REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
