"The Journey Begins With A Journal"

The National Writing Project in New Hampshire (formerly known as the Plymouth Writing Project) is dedicated to improving the teaching of writing in our nation’s schools. Since 2002, we have offered summer institutes for the best teachers of writing in the state. Each summer we offer unique day camp experiences specifically for young writers.

This camp will allow children to explore journals in many forms. We will use book and papermaking techniques to create journals for quotes, poetry, and art. For our nature journal we will record our observations outdoors and undertake a recycled art and writing project. Also, integrating writing, art, technology, and science, we will create an electrifyingly fun journal that contains actual working circuits and LED lights!

PSU Campus

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.

Tig Notaro is busier than she’s ever been doing stand-up, appearing frequently on Conan, recording her popular podcast Professor Blastoff and appearing in movies like In a World, Shreveport, and Walk of Shame. Many people know her from her hilarious story about a series of run-ins with ’80s pop star Taylor Dayne featured on This American Life. Then, in 2012, Notaro endured a series of back-to-back health crises and personal tragedies that would put most careers on indefinite hold. Instead, she took to the stage. A tweet from Louis C.K. the next day read: “I’ve seen a handful of truly great, masterful standup sets. One was Tig Notaro….”  The set was recorded and became the best-selling comedy album of the year and nominated for a Grammy.  Look for her upcoming Showtime special Knock Knock, It’s Tig Notaro, in which she’ll perform comedy in peoples’ basements, backyards, and barns.

Voigt served as Vermont’s state poet from
