Fourth Annual Creative Writing Day
Camp for Teens, at Hemingway center

May 9, 2006 -- Dr. Robert Lamm, Arkansas State University, and Donna James, Sloan-Hendrix High School, will lead the Fourth Annual Creative Writing Day Camp for Teens.

The camp will be held at the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center (HPMEC), 1021 West Cherry Street, Piggott, Arkansas, Monday through Friday, June 19-23, 2006, from 8:00 a.m. to noon. The computer room will be open and available to participants from noon until 5 p.m. each day.

Both Lamm and James have long been associated with the NEA Writing Project and the Arkansas Anthology, a publication of Arkansas’ students’ writing. Deanna Dismukes, HPMEC Education Coordinator, is the program director.
