Canyon Crest Academy’s Creative Writing Club to hold Barnes and Noble fundraiser Dec. 6

Pick up your best holiday gifts at Canyon Crest Academy’s Barnes and Noble Book Fair on Dec. 6 to raise funds for the CCA Creative Writing Club. Items bought that day with a book fair flyer at the Carmel Valley Barnes and Noble, 12835 El Camino Real, will support the second annual CCA Writers’ Conference. Flyers can be obtained by emailing Club members will be on hand to provide gift wrapping for a donation as well.

The CCA Writers’ Conference is a free all day event that will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23. Local high school students will take workshops on a variety of topics, including writing short stories, plotting the best selling novel, poetry, playwriting, and, new this year, songwriting and changing the world through writing.

Devyn Krevat, president of the CCA Creative Writing Club, founded the writing conference after attending the SDSU Writers Conference.

“Last year’s CCA conference was amazing. We learned so much from local authors who taught the workshops and discussed their own experiences in the publishing world. This year’s conference will offer more workshops, speakers and topics, and will be open to more high schools.”

The conference is funded completely by fundraisers and donations. All proceeds from the book fair will be used to purchase conference supplies, and pay for speaker and facility expenses. Companies and individuals interested in supporting the conference directly can call (858) 414-2463 for sponsorship opportunities.
