Burgeoning writers polish their technique during these one-week workshops. Campers start their day with a three-hour intensive in their chosen area of study—poetry, fiction, memoir, scripts or journalism—led by a published author or a produced playwright and work to create a finished project shaped by the teacher’s guidance and feedback. In the afternoon, campers take field trips to publishing houses to learn what it takes to break into the creative world and what it’s like to work for these companies. Budding literary stars can also take electives that focus on other applications of their skills such as graphic novels, illustrations, filmmaking, TV writing or embarking on poetry hikes. Ages 9–16.
