Creative Writing Boot Camp
Entering grades 6 - 8

In this week-long writers' workshop,
beginning and experienced writers alike will  learn new techniques for crafting poetry and  fiction, and all will present their work aloud at  a daily "Open Mic." Through writing games,  exercises, and revision techniques, participants  will build skills to help them craft plot, character,  and dialogue, as well as sharpen their ability  to use tone, description, and figurative language. Young writers will conclude the week with  a collection of prompts, drafts, and polished  pieces, and we will compile a literary magazine  featuring the best of the week's work!  Instructor: Emily Perez

June 12-June 16
9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. & 12:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.
