We are offering the following camp for rising 6th-8th graders from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. during the week of July 11-15:
Short Story Camp
Learn to brainstorm, plan, write, workshop, and publish a short story in one week! We will spend the morning reading short stories from contemporary authors and then we will go out into the city to observe characters and brainstorm actions and a plot. We will spend the last hour each day developing and writing a short story that will be added to a collection that we will publish. It will be a fun and inspiring week! Students will leave camp with the sense of what the six traits of a short story are and with the ability to self-publish a book. Each student will receive a copy of the book we publish upon completion of the camp.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
