Flash Fiction Scribes for 9-12th grade
Love short stories? In this camp, students will play with this most condensed story form and discover how they can pack a whole world into something under 1000 words. Students will write a short story a day and take inspiration from writers who play with fantasy, sci-fi, fairy tale, and realistic fiction. The week will culminate with a reading and/or presentation of student work.
This camp is for students entering 9-12th grade in Fall 2023 and will take place online using Zoom.
Scribes Summer camps are offered on a scaled registration rate in order to offer financially accessible programming for all youth. Payments above the 100% rate help offset costs that allow for accessible programming to continue. Donations of any amount can also be made upon registration. Scholarships are also available by filling out our scholarship application. Questions? Please email email@example.com.
