*Open to incoming 7th – 12th
This course is centered on YA (young adult) fiction and non-fiction. Mornings are spent engaging in writing activities on and around campus. These activities are designed to help us craft an article, short story or children’s book based on our experience. Integrated within the engage and write sessions are activities for improving your writing craft and using technology to enhance your writing. Participants that have a laptop are encouraged to bring it as we will explore some online publishing tools such as iBook.

*Like our Young Writers Camps, this course will be led by several teachers allowing us to offer campers age appropriate writing activities.
