In a few months from now, we will conduct Muses Boot Camp 2022. We will train disabled people to become poets and short story writers. Our trainer has been participating in open mics like the video above to learn more about poetry, storytelling, other open mics and to connect with potential future partners who might be able to help our Boot Camps.
Keep checking our website for the starting date of the Boot Camp. We encourage the disabled people to apply for the Boot Camp. It will be free of charge. We will also help them publish their work as poetry or short story collections.
Stay tuned! www.stretchmore.org
