Young Writer’s Exploration
Ages 8 – 12
July 27 - July 31 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Lyndhurst Campus $375
This camp offers an exploration of writing that encompasses learning as well as having fun. We will be learning “the rules” of writing but also looking for ways to break the rules in a stress-free, nonjudgmental, open, and engaging environment. Students will have the freedom to write on topics and genres that interest them, and they will also be exposed to a packed curriculum of writing exercises. This creative writing workshop might include young people acting out the lives of student-generated characters, performing poetry and song, walking in urban Cleveland and “listening in on” conversations to develop dialogue, participating in round-table discussions of classmates’ work, or tasting desserts to write a coffee shop review. In addition to the exploration of writing, students will have quiet time to write, draft, revise, and edit their own chosen work. The workshop will end with an open reading of their work at a local coffee shop or open space.
