Here’s what one participant has to say about her experience:
“Playshops are summer camp for the soul, full of humor, creativity, joy and poignant moments.  Krayna’s a brilliant facilitator of the heart, who supports artistic freedom and exuberant expression with no pressure or critiquing.  You’ll go home refreshed after being in the company of others who share a love of words and community.”   J.B., Writer & Poet

“Hey, you there!  Listen,
and we’ll tell you a story that’ll surprise you!”
