Twisted Tales and Evil Villains

Come to the dark side this summer! Every story has two sides. How well do you know your villains and bad guys? In this camp we will explore evil motives, intense opposition, and learn how to create believable conflict in stories by studying existing evil villains and creating new ones to enhance the terror in your tales. We’ll learn from authors, go on walk and writes, visit some museums, and have an altogether sinister time. See you there—if you dare!
