Slipper Camp – HOME

On October 16, 2017, HOME will be the subject of the next online Writing Slipper Camp of 2017.

Home is a breathtakingly universal need. After her great adventure, Dorothy realized, “There’s no place like home.” Robert Frost wrote, “Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.” Home might be where the heart is. It might be a person, a pet, a place… you name it. I’ve often felt hiraeth: a longing for a home that never was.

Whatever your experience, the prompts in this Slipper Camp are designed to guide you through writing 10,000 words about HOME in your own unique way.

I hope you will be 1 of 10 writers who will receive 3 illustrated prompts about HOME every OTHER morning for 20 days along with daily writing tips and coaching suggestions. You will be writing 1,000 words (2 pages) on 1 of the 3 daily prompts and sending it to me by midnight every OTHER day. I will read them each day and we will talk about your writing at the end of Slipper Camp.

Starts October 16, Ends November 3rd. Over 400 writers/non-writers have taken this structured online writing class since 2011.

Please email me at lspravina21@gmail.com me for further details.

Price: $200 for 20 days.

Can’t wait to read your writings.

SLIPPER CAMP: FREEDOM

15317947_10153907015395957_5108013391965629602_n

Dear Writers,

The last Slipper Camp – MINDFULNESS – took us into the election and past it. Twelve writers wrote at a heightened time, a critical time in our lives and the life of this country. I don’t need to remind any of us about that.

Like a beautiful sand castle that’s washed away by the next wave, our lives changed in a moment on November 8th. Every Slipper Camp writer who wrote on the 30 prompts about MINDFULNESS said it was an enormously positive, grounding, helpful and, for some, a lifechanging experience to be writing at that time.

In the past month I’ve searched within and without to find the topic of the next Slipper Camp. I finally settled on FREEDOM. Please click on the photo above. It helped me to decide on that as our topic.

I can’t think of anything more relevant about which to write 10,000 words in January. FREEDOM. We’ll be writing on Martin Luther King Day, the March on Washington and the Inauguration. We’ll be writing about FREEDOM from many different angles. I’m already creating the 30 prompts we’ll be using and hope you’ll be writing along with me. FREEDOM. Don’t you love the ring of that word?

WHAT IS SLIPPER CAMP?

SLIPPER CAMP is an online writing class. It’s open to only 10 writers who will receive 3 illustrated prompts about FREEDOM every OTHER morning for 20 days along with daily writing tips and coaching suggestions.

If you join you’ll be writing 1,000 words (2 pages) on 1 of the 3 daily prompts and sending them to me by midnight every OTHER day. Whenever I get your words I’ll read them and let you know I got them. At the end of Slipper Camp we’ll set a one-hour call to talk about your writings.

Hundreds of writers have taken this structured online writng course over the past years. The most common comment I hear is that the combination of structure and accountability yields good writing. Books, screenplays, a play, two novels and numerous published articles have been generated in Slipper Camps.

If you want to join Slipper Camp please email me at pravina@aol.com (or join the facebook event here) and we’ll send you details. Starts January 15. Ends February 2. Limited to 10 writers, 5 spaces are taken already.

Slipper Camp is a place where you discover yourself on the page.
Slipper Camp allows you to remember who you are.
If you have more to say (who doesn’t?) please join Slipper Camp.
If your story is ongoing please use Slipper Camp to continue it.
If you feel you don’t write enough, come write in Slipper Camp.
Please join us.
FREEDOM!

SLIPPER CAMP: MINDFULNESS

14568199_10153759094655957_6486554691410864052_n

I’ve been searching for awhile for the next topic of my online writing Slipper Camp. This one will take us into the the election and past it. (Starting October 29, ending 20 days later.) We will be writing at a heightened time, a critical time in our lives and the life of this country. I don’t need to remind any of us about that. Every topic I thought of I ended up rejecting. Not deep enough to create 30 prompts around at a time like this. Then I came upon this photo. It reminded me of one I took years ago on Fire Island. A photo of a majestic sand castle I found early one morning as the tide was coming in. And I marveled at the non-attachment of building such a creation, knowing it would be destroyed by the next wave. So here’s the topic of the next online writing Slipper Camp – Mindfulness. We’ll be writing about times we’ve lived our lives in every moment. Times we’ve been present even as we’ve built and loved, knowing that life can change in a moment. Like a beautiful sand castle that’s washed away by the next wave. Impermanence. Non-attachment. The circle of life. Hope and faith. Mindfulness. That’s what I’m creating prompts about. I hope you’ll be writing along with me.

It will be the same format as always – 10 writers will receive 3 illustrated prompts about Mindfulness every OTHER morning for 20 days along with daily writing tips and coaching suggestions.

You’ll be writing 1,000 words (2 pages) on 1 of the 3 daily prompts and sending them to me by midnight every OTHER day. Whenever I get your words I’ll read them and let you know I got them. At the end of Slipper Camp we’ll set a one-hour call to talk about your writings.

Hundreds of writers have taken this structured online writng course over the past years. The most common comment I hear is that the combination of structure and accountability yields good writing. Books, screenplays, a play, two novels and numerous published articles have been generated in Slipper Camps.

You’ll be writing 1,000 words (2 pages) on 1 of the 3 daily prompts and sending them to me by midnight every OTHER day. Whenever I get your words I’ll read them and let you know I got them. At the end of Slipper Camp we’ll set a one-hour call to talk about your writings.

Hundreds of writers have taken this structured online writng course over the past years. The most common comment I hear is that the combination of structure and accountability yields good writing.

Slipper Camp – HOME

Dear Ones,
One little letter off! On April 10, 2016, HOME will be the subject of the fourth online Writing Slipper Camp of 2016. Not Hope, HOME.

That’s not to say that HOPE wouldn’t be a terrific topic for a Slipper Camp. But after creating 60 prompts on LOVE over the past few months, Hope was leading me down some of the same roads as I thought about new prompts.

So we’ll be writing about HOME. Be it ever so humble, HOME is more than a place. It’s also an idea. It’s where the heart is.

I hope you will be 1 of 10 writers who will receive 3 illustrated prompts about HOME every OTHER morning for 20 days, along with daily writing tips and coaching suggestions. You will be writing 1,000 words (2 pages) on 1 of the 3 daily prompts and sending it to me by midnight every OTHER day.

Can’t wait to read your writings.

Some more details:

WHAT IS SLIPPER CAMP?
Slipper Camp is a 20 day online writing experience. (10 days of receiving writing prompts; 2 days to write each one.) I call it Slipper Camp because you can stay home and write in your PJ’S and slippers.

Every morning at 7:00 AM the day’s prompts will arrive in your mailbox. You will be asked to write 1,000 words every other day (approx. 2 pages) on a prompt of your choice and you will send it to me by midnight of the following day.

Every day I will acknowledge that I got it. Every day I will read your writing. But I won’t comment on it yet. (Because Slipper Camp is designed to create a rhythm of writing daily or every other day, without feedback. Yet.)

When the 20 days are up, you will have written 10,000 words. No small feat.

When the 20 days are up we will talk one-on-one (over the phone) about your writing.

NOTE: SLIPPER CAMP IS ONLY OPEN TO THE FIRST 10 WRITERS WHO SIGN UP. Can’t read more than that every day!

SLIPPER CAMP: THE STORY
In 2011, I noticed that there were many online Writing Boot Camps – they all ask for writing to be done every day. I decided that pace was too hectic – ergo, Slipper Camp. Geared to our busy lives. A gentler way to get some great writing done over 20 days. I create three unique prompts per day for you to choose from – totaling 30 prompts per Slipper Camp. OR you can choose to write from none of the prompts and use this as a kickass way to get 10,000 words written over 20 days. However you do it, It WORKS.

Now, over 250 writers later, this is my 17th Slipper Camp with brand new prompts.

So let’s get writing and have some fun! Please message me for the fee. I welcome you to Slipper Camp!

Slipper Camp- FAMILY
1661002_10152979759050957_6847343706526910491_n

Begins: September 11th

Dear Writers,

I’m excited to announce a new Slipper Camp!!!

THE DETAILS:
– Slipper Camp is a 20 day online writing experience. (10 days of receiving writing prompts; 2 days to write each one.) I call it Slipper Camp because you can stay home and write in your PJ’S and slippers!
I also call it Slipper Camp because, unlike other online Boot Camps, you have two days to write each prompt instead of one.
– When you sign up, every OTHER morning, starting September 11th and ending on October 1st, you will receive writing prompts from me in your email.
– You will get explicit instructions about how to do this.
– You will be asked to write 1,000 words (approx 2 pages) on a prompt and to send it to me by midnight of the following day.
When the 20 days are up, you will have written 20,000 words. No small feat.
After it ends, we will talk (over the phone) about your writing

And the theme is…. FAMILY.
We all have one. We all have things to say about this subject. This Slipper Camp will guide you to write about one of the subjects you know best.
This can be a great opportunity to say what you’ve been thinking about or longing to say; to tell family stories you’ve never written down; a chance to write about a special family photo or a childhood memory or something that happened last week.
(OR.. you can ignore the prompts and use Slipper Camp as a 20 day kick in the pants to work on that project you’ve been putting down.
Many have used it that way.)

That’s it. (By the way, this is the one and only Slipper Camp of its kind. There are other online Writing Boot Camps – but they all ask for writing to be done every day. I decided that pace was too hectic for us – ergo, Slipper Camp. Geared to our busy lives. A gentler way to get some writing done over 20 days.)
– Tuition is the same as always – $200 ($10/day for 20 days.)
Please pass this on if you like.

Please pass this on, if you like. Slipper Camp makes a great gift for someone else and.. we have gift certificates! (Sign up via https://lindaschreyer.wordpress.com/events/, through here, or email me @lspravina21@gmail.com)

SLIPPER CAMP: THE STORY
In 2011, I noticed that there were many online Writing Boot Camps – they all ask for writing to be done every day. I decided that pace was too hectic – ergo, Slipper Camp. Geared to our busy lives. A gentler way to get some great writing done over 20 days. I create three unique prompts per day for you to choose from – totaling 30 prompts per Slipper Camp. OR you can choose to write from none of the prompts and use this as a kickass way to get 10,000 words written over 20 days. However you do it, It WORKS.

Now, over 250 writers later, this is my 16th Slipper Camp with brand new prompts.

So let’s get writing and have some fun! Please message me for the fee. I welcome you to Slipper Camp!

Slipper Camp– It’s About Time
image
Begins: May 20th, 2015
Dear Writers,

I’m excited to announce a brand new Slipper Camp. The subject: IT’S ABOUT TIME.WHAT IS SLIPPER CAMP?Slipper Camp is a 20 day online writing experience. (10 days of receiving writing prompts; 2 days to write each one.) I call it Slipper Camp because you can stay home and write in your PJ’S and slippers.You will be asked to write 1,000 words every other day (approx.. 2 pages) on a prompt of your choice and you will send it to me by midnight of the following day.Slipper Camp starts on May 20. If you sign up, please make sure you have the time to do this. When the 20 days are up, you will have written 20,000 words. No small feat.After it ends, we will talk (over the phone) about your writing.

HOW TO ENROLL?

Once you’ve accepted this invitation you will receive a PM from me with further instructions.

Class is limited to 10 students so please sign up now if you’re interested. It fills up quickly.

THE TOPIC: IT’S ABOUT TIME

“What time is it?” “How much time will it take?” “I have no time for myself.” “How much time do I have left?”
This Slipper Camp will guide you to write about time, in any way you choose. This can be a great opportunity to say what you’ve been thinking about or longing to say; you can reflect what time means to you. Every day there will be several different prompts to choose from.

What you write will depend on how the prompts hit you.
