A fun week of camp-style writing classes designed for elementary students to develop their imaginative skills and hone their craft for writing fiction or creative nonfiction. Students learn how writers draw on research and real experience for their stories. They experiment with various formats, i.e. cartoons, online articles, scripts, etc.

Experienced, credentialed writing teachers (trained consultants from SJAWP) give engaging lessons and demonstrate techniques for developing the work that students choose. Teachers confer to give feedback while workshops are in progress. Class size is limited to 18. Arts and crafts are available at recess and lunch times to further encourage creativity.
