Science Fiction & Fantasy Scribes, 7-8th grade

Students in this camp will explore the worlds of Science Fiction and Fantasy in order to develop their creative writing skills. Students will read a wide variety of work from carefully curated authors and will participate in writing activities, craft exercises, and experiences designed to inspire their imaginations. This camp will be facilitated by two local artists: Courtney Bird and Corinne Manning are both published writers and educators. 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 online using Zoom and Google Classroom. All camps will break for lunch from 12-1pm each day.
