Capacity: seat
Price:

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: Sierra Nelson is a published poet and educator, and Corinne Manning is a published writer and educator; it will also feature guest teaching artists. The week will culminate with a reading of student work and the option for students to contribute a chosen piece to a digital anthology of their work. 

This camp is for students entering 9th-12th grade in Fall 2021 and will take place online using Zoom and Google Classroom. All camps will break for lunch from 12-1pm each day.

Scholarships are available by application. Questions? Please email keliko@hugohouse.org.
