2021/2022 - Brave New World: Changing Times & Forging Ahead
"Without change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken." - Frank Herbert
The dynamics of Author Quest are changing! Although we are very disappointed to announce that our traditional 4-day/3-night camps have been discontinued, that doesn't mean that Author Quest is going away. We're making preparations for shorter sessions/events (2 hours) designed to bring the Author Quest experience to various locations. This will allow Author Quest to be more accessible to those who otherwise wouldn't be able to attend a four-day camp in northern lower Michigan. (Note: this has nothing to do with the increasing dogman sightings being reported in the northern Michigan region.) Shorter, streamlined, and compacted sessions will enable even more young writers to participate and learn new techniques and tactics to become better writers.
Although plans have been in the works for some time, it hasn't been possible to schedule anything definite due to the ever-changing conditions of the pandemic. Right now, we're ready to schedule our first session in Troy, Michigan, *possibly* in November...pandemic permitting. We hope to have more details and open up registration for the first session(s) within the coming weeks.
We know that this news will be disappointing to those who've been planning on attending one of our 'traditional' overnight camps, but please know that it was not a conclusion reached in haste. It's always been our intention to keep Author Quest a viable, progressive program that can grow with the changing needs of society. Ultimately, we see these changes as a positive advancement into the decade, and we hope you'll join us in looking forward to an exciting, great future. And if you're not already following Author Quest on Facebook, make sure you do so for more frequent updates and news!
