Writing Camp
Description
Our camp is for kids who love to write and explore their creativity, mainly within the genres of poetry and short fiction. We also spend some time on essay writing and autobiography. We are not remedial, but if you have a shy writer — one who is afraid of the blank page — this camp shows that sort of writer how to let go and not worry about judgment and red pencil marks.
Fee $215
