Science Fiction & Fantasy Scribes, 7-8th grade
Open to all levels
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. Scholarships are available by application. Questions? Please email email@example.com.
*Note – all Scribes Summer camps are in Pacific Standard Time
Corinne Manning's debut story collection We Had No Rules has received starred reviews from Booklist and Publisher's Weekly the latter noting it "exquisitely examines queer relationships with equal parts humor, heartache, and titillation." Corinne has taught for Hugo House since 2011.
Born in New Jersey, Courtney holds an MFA in Fiction from the University of Montana and a BA in Art History from Princeton. Her work has appeared in The Fairy Tale Review, The Masters Review, The Indiana Review, Barrelhouse, and The Los Angeles Review, among others. When Courtney's not writing, she can be found coaching lacrosse, hiking with her baby on her back, or looking for weird little pockets of wonder in the world. Courtney lives in Seattle, where she was a Hugo House Fellow in 2018-2019.
