This is a week long morning camp for students ages 9-14!
Do you like to tell stories? Do you find yourself running away with your imagination? Well, Write On! We do too! In our classes, students will have the opportunity to participate in fun, interactive and independent writing exercises that explore the techniques of mystery writing, creative fiction, realistic narrative fiction, and non-fiction. Students learn tips for getting started, how to “reel the reader in,” and how to uses of the five senses to unlock the power of descriptive writing. Register early as these seats fill quickly!
