After attending the Write Camp unconference in Milwaukee,WI this year, I got to thinking how I would love to have something like that where I live. Not that I’m far from Milwaukee, but any excuse to have writers get together and learn is good enough for me.
Write Camp is free. Anyone who wants to teach a session does so and anyone who wants to show up, the same. The only real rule is the rule of two feet: if you don’t like the session you’re in, feel free to leave and check out a different one. This rule comes in very handy when you want to see many sessions all planned at the same time.
Starting small is my goal. Finding out how many other writers would want to (and be able to) come to Southeastern WI. How many would even be interested? Another goal would be to provide sessions/lessons that writers can find useful.
So I finally come to my point: How many would be interested in a free writerly learning experience and if something like this was available to you, what kinds of sessions would you like to see?
Another thought (separate thing) would be to do something online. Have a Skype chat or something similar to get writers together.
I would love to hear everyone’s opinions and thoughts in the comments!
