Summer Camp Online

Summer Creative Writing

Using pre-writing activities, skill builders, and more, we introduce students to genre while teaching important writing, editing, and grammar skills.

About this course

The purpose of creative writing is to provide students with a multi-genre and interesting way to tap into their creativity.

Each week, students will be introduced to a new genre and learn how to write within that genre. Students will learn everything from adventure to mystery to tall-tales while studying the elements that make that style of writing unique. And of course, there will be plenty of focus on grammar and spelling so students don’t lose their edge while they’re out for the summer.
