WRP’s Writers’ Barn Summer camps for young writers

Children and young adults are natural storytellers, and summer break is the perfect time for relaxed reading, writing, and storytelling. The Writers’ Barn summer camps will provide a space for creative, imaginative storytelling, and an opportunity for young writers to collaborate with peers. Each morning will include a variety of writing-based activities and writing prompts, sure to inspire any young writer who registers. Work in nature writing, poetry, memory writing, and storytelling will be coupled with hands-on art projects to supplement the written word. The sessions are designed for all students, not just those who have already found a love for reading and writing. The Writers’ Barn summer camps will build confidence, provide real audiences, and give young writers the chance to keep their skills sharp over the summer. Outdoor activities will abound, provided that the weather complies.
WRP’s Writers’ Barn instructor Emily Copeland has taught writing at Saint Michael’s College, been a literary assistant for novelist John Irving, has participated in Champlain College’s Young Writers Conferences, and has coached middle school students in soccer and skiing.
