Summer 2013 WORD Up Youth Writing Camp

If you enjoy creative writing, join us for an exciting week of poetry, short stories, and fun. Your writing will be inspired by music, photographs, paintings, nature, and even food. This is a week to explore your own writing interests; write a song, create a fictional character, or finally write about an experience from your past. You can do all of this while collaborating and receiving feedback from not only your peers but also published writers.

WORD Up will provide you the opportunity to improve your writing skills through intense, innovative writing activities that will lend authenticity and meaning to your writing. Besides practicing idea and content generation, writers will be coached through revision exercises to strengthen voice and description. Campers should finish the week with the inspiration and confidence necessary to excel in future writing assignments and assessments. For students in grades 4-12.
