Sunday, Jul. 27 - Friday, Aug. 1
The purpose of this residential program for young writers entering grades 9-12 is to create a community of writers to share in the art of writing.
Together we will read as writers and explore genres of writing, including poetry, prose and memoir. Participants will partake in writing activities that will help strengthen their craft through quick writes, prompts, revision exercises and conferencing with both instructors and peers. Young writers will have the opportunity to experience collaborative work with members of the other writing camps on campus, as well as, the NWPNH Summer Institute for teachers.
Students will stay in a PSU dormitory supervised by program counselors and participate in evening activities. Activities may include: ice-skating, open mic or movie nights, trips to downtown, visiting authors and hikes/walks.
Families will be invited to hear the writing created at the Institute during an open mic celebration on Friday afternoon.
