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.

"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!

Instructor: Jim Gleich
Ages: Going into grades 6, 7, and 8
Location: Silver Hall Dance Room

Jim Gleich has been involved with theatre for many years and has intensely studied the art of theatrical/stage combat. These are specialized techniques designed to create the illusion of physical combat without causing harm to the performers. The term is also used informally to describe fight choreography for film and television. It is a common field of study for actors and dancers and is closely related to the practice of stunts.

Campers will be learning the basic skills of Hand-to-Hand combat, rolling, simple falls, choreography notation / analysis, stage combat history, and introduction to single sword techniques. All students will perform their class fight each day at the end of class. Students should wear comfortable clothing and bring a pad and pencil for notes.
