Rising 9th–11th graders
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! With the guidance of teacher and writer Rebekah L. Goode, this camp will focus on fiction and creative non-fiction, 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 size is limited to 12.
July 16-20, Mon.-Fri.
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
