I would really like to remove all of the ads from the sites that the CWC owns: including this homepage, Hit and Run Magazine, Writers and Teachers Collaborative, Sitting Pretty Magazine, and Summer Writing Camp. This means I have to upgrade the sites to the tune of up to $100 each. I ask you to please help me deliver the best looking products that I can, without the distractions of ads. My personal philosophy is that I do not want to be affiliated with organizations that are not related to what I do and ads symbolize affiliation. I am happy to cooperate, but do not want to affiliate. So would you please help the Charlottesville Writing Center remain autonomous? You can send a check to PO Box 5608 Charlottesville, VA 22903, or you can contribute via Paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org. The CWC is a 501(c)3 agency and your contribution is tax deductible.
Thanks in advance for your consideration and your support.
God bless you and your writing.
Founder and Director, CWC
Dear Friends of CWC: I have added a new tab called “Your Writings” to the site. I want to develop it for the homeschool population, but am asking you to try it out first. I have posted a prompt, very similar to what you might find at The Nervous Breakdown site.
This page is password protected and will not stay up for very long. I basically want to see how it will work and if the idea will be suitable for youth. Since youth might be accessing it, I will ask that you keep your posts to PG-13 or below. Thank you.
2:37 PM: ok, I put the Your Writing page under Stuff We Do. Same password. Play on!
Poetry Class: Introduction to Form.

A month-long blast into the basics of scansion and learning the nuts and bolts of how to write in meter. Course goal — you write a sonnet. This is truly a beginner’s class.
Write to email@example.com or through Facebook to sign up.
This is going to be the start of a great year!
We are taking a break from camp this year while we work on spiffing up our homeschool services plan for this fall. We are always available for individual consultation and maybe even a writing themed pool party.
Enjoy your summer!!!
The CWC Staff
Sign up NOW. Session starts on August 8. Monday through Friday (Aug 12) 9 am til noon. The goal for the week is to write an essay. That’s it. Get the thinking and writer muscles working together in a low-impact, non-graded atmosphere. Students are invited to write about anything they want — just create and support an argument with a little bit of research. Presto: ready for school. Parents: it’s $175.00 for the session. We will meet downtown.
The director has set a goal of raising $3,500, to go directly to scholarships for the CWC summer camp. 10 full scholarship and 20 half scholarships. People are asking for assistance. Please help me help them have a writing experience they will never forget.
