Campers will develop their skills in writing fiction and poetry and explore other forms of creative writing, such as flash fiction, screenwriting, and copywriting. The week’s activities include journaling, free-writing, guided writing, structured exercises, and revision strategies. Campers will participate in workshops to learn to give and accept constructive criticism. Instructors will provide individual feedback on campers’ work to help them develop their unique voice and style. Each day will include time for writing and reading. The week will close with a lunch reception for campers and their families in which campers will read from their best work and receive a booklet compiling highlights from the week’s writing in each genre.
