What's Included

In this workshop, you will explore the things that inspire you. As a community of writers, you’ll focus on how to turn these inspirations into pieces of poetry, short stories, memoir, and essays. By writing and reading daily, you’ll discuss what makes writing succeed, and you will use these techniques to help you put your own thoughts down on the blank page. Using the college creative writing workshop as a model, you will conference and peer review each other’s work in a supportive environment. You can bring work you’ve already started, and you will get to work on new writing projects, too. At the end of the workshop, you will share work at a reading, and you will leave with a portfolio of your writing. For students entering 10th through 12th 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.
