March 17 – 19, Online
Drink the Wild Air is a Creative Writing Retreat for Youth ages 11 – 19. Typically nestled in the gateway to the rocky mountains in Kananaskis country, this year we’ll come together online to take workshops with working professionals, play games, share our stories, our songs, our poems and our art. Join us on March 17th for orientation, and on March 18th and 19th for a weekend of creative razzmatazz, hijinks, capers, and general hullabaloo.
