Teen writer's group

    I went to a week-long teen writer's camp last month, taught by a fiction author.
    The teaching was OK (except the day we did nothing but poetry - I am not good with poetry) but what was really cool was meeting the other young writers there. They're the only group of nondisabled kids that I've really felt a part of! I was a bit more eccentric than most of them, but pretty much all of them were eccentric and quite tolerant of diversity.
    The really cool thing is that one of the girls from this camp has decided to arrange a club made up of participants in this camp and friends/siblings who also like to write. We're meeting on August 26, and I'm really excited about it!
    Have any of your kids gotten involved in social groups of artistic kids, and how did it go? It seems to me because of the imaginative talents common in PDA that a lot of PDA kids would relate well to other highly imaginative kids.
