Don't miss this EPIC opportunity to get one-on-one with Jenny L. Cote and her colleague Libby McNamee for this online writing camp! These two award-winning authors will lead two groups of 20 campers through a 4-week online writing course focused on writing the story of 1776. Campers will learn vital American history as well as how to research and write historical fiction. Camp includes fun workshops, surprise special guests, and complimentary copies of one of each author's books. Campers will assume the identity of a Revolutionary character and each week will conduct research and complete writing assignments to send to the authors who will provide critiques. Campers will share their work with the group to gain feedback, encouragement and ideas. At the completion of Epic Patriot Camp, the group's work will be compiled and published with a title the group develops, and will be available for sale on Amazon. Each camper will receive a copy of the published book, and be able to order additional copies if they wish.
An ending celebration with optional colonial dress to share our work with families will top off this once in a lifetime experience. When your camper returns to class in the fall, they can proudly say that they became a published author over the summer!
Jenny and Libby hope this experience will foster friendships for kids that continue long after camp, and will serve as a launching pad for young people who are serious about pursuing a writing career. See Libby's bio below.
Space is limited and will fill quickly so reserve your spot today! We can't wait to "see you" in June! HUZZAH!
Meet Libby McNamee
An author, public speaker, and lawyer, Libby loves exploring America’s many historical sites. When a descendant told her about Susanna Bolling’s heroism, Libby was determined to share it with the world. “Susanna’s Midnight Ride: The Girl Who Won the Revolutionary War” is her first historical novel. Her second novel,”Dolley Madison and the War of 1812: America’s First Lady,” was released in August 24, 2021, the 207th anniversary of the burning of Washington City.
Libby served as a US Army JAG Officer in Korea, Bosnia, Germany and Washington State. She and her book-obsessed husband and son live in Richmond, Virginia. A Boston native, Libby graduated from Georgetown University cum laude and Catholic University Law School.
