Summer Writing Camp for Teens
Instructor: Terra Elan McVoy
Rising 9th- 11th graders
Location: Agnes Scott College
Do you have ideas for stories but not the time to work on them? Or ones you’re excited about at first, but can’t keep up the momentum? Want to develop your characters more fully, work on setting and dialogue, strengthen your powers of description and plotting, get feedback on your work, be inspired by other writers like yourself, and in general immerse yourself in a whole week of nothing but writing? Then this summer camp is for you! Spend five days with young adult author and writing instructor Terra Elan McVoy. This camp will be fiction-centric, though we will touch on elements of poetry to infuse your prose with dynamic language. Open to experienced teen writers and first-timers alike!
Class Limit is 12.
