Rising 6th–8th graders
This is an all-day summer camp for middle schoolers who love to write (or think they might love to write), and want to throw themselves at words and stories. With the guidance of teacher and writer Rebekah L. Goode, campers will learn the basic building blocks of story writing, play with story starting ideas, develop characters, explore setting, build their descriptive muscles, and even dabble in some poetry. Whether you have written tons already, or just have a tiny idea, as long as you are willing to experiment, explore, and share, you are the right camper for this!
Class size is limited to 12.
June 18-22, Mon.-Fri.
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Camp is held on the campus of Agnes Scott College in Decatur.
Instructor: Rebekah L. Goode is a high school creative writing teacher and journalism adviser, who holds a M.A.T. from Agnes Scott College and is the director of Student Publications at Woodward Academy.
