Writing Your Moment
Monday, Jul 16, 2018 @ 1:00 PM - Friday, Jul 20, 2018 @ 4:00 PM
Over the course of this camp, students will review the elements of a story and learn more about their complexities and nuances, analyze the works of several authors and evaluate their use of literary elements, and apply their newly developed understandings of these elements by crafting a personal narrative about a specific moment in their life. They will then evaluate and revise your own piece and the works of others several times to ensure that your final product is everything you want it to be and share their work with classmates by delivering a dramatic reading of the finished piece. I know this sounds like a lot to fit into one week, but the skills and confidence about writing will be something students can be proud of and carry with them into their next school year.
