SUMMER ART CAMP: Creative Writing Retreat with Nick Jaina

Mon, September 12 @ 10:00 am

Creative Writing Retreat   with Nick Jaina 


Nick’s first Summer Art Camp workshops went so well that we are adding another workshop. This time in Artist-In-Residence style in which the entire lodge is set aside for students in this workshop and all students may book a room in the lodge for $50 a night.

Mon Sept 12 th – Thurs Sept 15th 10am – 1pm   or   2pm – 5pm

This set of workshops focuses on all the good things that writing can do for your mental and emotional state, how it can bring you closer to people, and how it can help you understand the world. Rather than just trying to make something marketable, we will work on discovering the interesting, funny, and wonderful ideas that are sitting inside of us.

Students sign up for the workshop and then pick the time slot they prefer.

Sign up for 1 day or all 4. Pick one time slot for each day.

We are offering Writer Retreat prices for any suite in the lodge: $150 for the week or $50 a night (potentially shared accommodations). Students do not have to stay at the Sou’wester to take any of these classes.

Nick Jaina is a musician and author from Portland, Oregon. His book Get It While You Can is a finalist for the Oregon Book Award in Creative Non-Fiction. He has taught writing workshops for ten years at Pendleton Rock Camp.


Cost $100 for all four days or $30 each day.
