Video Poems Scribes, 7-8th grade

In this camp, we will write our own poems and then create short videos to accompany them. Expect video poem viewing, poem writing prompts, story boarding, and video making. This camp requires some basic skills, but no video editing experience is required. Students should also expect to spend some time outside of camp hours filming your video poem. This camp will be facilitated by Karen Finneyfrock, a published writer, poet, and educator.

This half-day camp is for students entering 7th-8th grade in Fall 2022 and will take place online using Zoom and Google Classroom. Scholarships are available by application. Questions? Please email youth@hugohouse.org.

*Note – all Scribes Summer camps are in Pacific Standard Time
