Creative Writing Scribes, 7-8th grade
Open to all levels
In this exploratory camp, students will develop their creative writing abilities by experimenting in a wide variety of prose and poetry. Students will examine works from carefully curated authors and will participate in writing activities, craft exercises, and artistic experiences designed to inspire their imaginations. This camp will be facilitated by two local artists: Shelby Handler is a published writer and educator, and Greg Stump is a published comic writer, graphic novelist, and educator. The week will culminate with a reading and/or presentation of student work.
This camp is for students entering 7th & 8th grade in Fall 2022 and will take place IN-PERSON at our facility in Capitol Hill. Be sure to read our COVID-19 Policies before registering for this camp. Scholarships are available by application. Questions? Please email email@example.com.
*Note – all Scribes Summer camps are in Pacific Standard Time
