Jumpstart your writing practice for the summer and expand your writing community in this week-long camp. We'll use prompts, writing time, workshop, and out-of-class activities to hone our skills at craft elements applicable to many genres. By the end of the week, you'll have your toolbox full of ideas, beginnings, and some drafts to keep you going all summer. We will discuss the submission process and publication opportunities for teens and end the week with an informal reading.

This course is geared towards creative, energetic, and open-minded writers all of levels. All you need to bring is a great attitude and a willingness to try plenty of new techniques. Writing notebooks will be available, but feel free to bring your own. For writers age 13-18 ONLY.
