Description

On February 16th-17th, 2019, the American International School Chennai (AISC) is hosting two fun-filled, exciting days of writing at our International School Writers Summit!

This event is designed for middle school students grades 6-8 and will be a great experience for them and their teachers. Students will improve their writing, work with authors and make new friends. Teachers will also work with authors and work with student writers.

We have three amazing authors coming to AISC who will engage students in enriching activities to improve their writing. You can choose from one of three different specialty strands to work on over the two days.

Picture Books

John Coy is our guest expert for Picture Books.

Novels

Morris Gleitzman is our guest expert for Novels.

Storytelling

Cat Weatherill is our guest expert for Storytelling.

We are offering all three specialty strands, but please remember that space is limited. Each school will be allowed to bring up to fifteen students, but must have an equal number of students for each of the specialty strand (ex. If you bring nine students, then three can be in picture books, three in novels, and three in storytelling).

In addition to working in the specialties, students will also have a menu of mini-courses to choose from. These workshops will be presented by teachers from AISC and chaperones from guest schools. Please sign up here with information about your mini-course.

AISC will provide and coordinate homestays for students and two chaperones. If you homestay, breakfast and dinner will be provided. Lunch will be provided at school. If you are homestaying, transportation to and from school will be provided.

The entry fee is $250 per student. Chaperones are free.

Chaperone Responsibilities:
  • chaperones are required to be on campus at all times during the conference,
  • chaperones are allowed to attend mini-course workshops with their students,
  • offering a mini-course is required.

Visas are required to enter India. Visas need to be applied for in advance.
