This week in press releases: Improv Camp
Do you know a creative teenager? Or one you'd just like out of the house for a week this summer? Or maybe you're one yourself (in which case what are you doing here? Did you get lost on the way to porn?). Got just the thing for you. Spread the word. Tell your friends. It's something I would have loved if I were ever creative or if I were ever a teenager.
