What's Included

This session is designed to get you excited about creative writing. You will write daily and learn about various forms and techniques, including prose, memoir, short stories, and poetry. You will discuss the nuts and bolts of writing, and through fun, interactive writing exercises, you’ll develop your own voice, be inspired by words, and explore your imagination. Our professional writers and teachers will show you how you can use writing to explore issues that are important to you. At the end of the session, you will share finished pieces in a celebration, and you will take home a portfolio of your own work. For students entering 7th through 9th Grade in the 2014 fall semester. Select one session for each child you are enrolling in camp. A sibling discount of $50 per additional child will be added at Check-Out.
