The two weeks I spent at the Ithaca Writers Institute was a huge eye opener and an awesome opportunity. I got to work extensively on forms of writing that I love and got to learn new styles as well. The instruction was fantastic and everyone was very helpful. I made a lot of new friends that I'm still talking to even though the camp is over. The Writers Institute has not only had a huge influence on my writing, but introduced me to other writers with the same goals that I have.
