Cost: $70

June 22–26 from 9am to 12pm

 

Led by: Shannon Yarbrough

Do you love to write? Create worlds? Invent characters? Keep people on their toes with your master storytelling skills? Join our Creative Writing Camp!

 

Come prepared to tap into your most playful self. Each day, we will read an excerpt from some of the best middle grade and young adult books in the world for inspiration. Then, we will dive into individual writing practice. On Monday, you will select a prompt from a list of choices. Sample prompts include:

 

  • Write a story that ends with the phrase, “But it was only a dream.”
  • Write a letter from someone who lived 100 years ago.
  • Write a poem about a color.
  • Write about an unsolved mystery that takes place where you live.
  • Write a story about someone who lives in the year 3020.
  • Write a story about something that seems ordinary but is actually magical. 

 

Each day will include a short lesson about the major facets of storytelling: setting, character, and plot. You will perfect your piece throughout the week with feedback from the instructor and other students in the class. Each class will also include “brain breaks” – fun, active games – to spark creativity. During the last class, everyone will read their work aloud, and parents and the community are invited! You will also be encouraged to submit your work to national writing competitions, such as the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards and others.

 

Once you complete payment, you will receive an email with a link to complete the application packet.

 

If you use the coupon code 20%DEPOSIT, Allied Arts will send you a PayPal invoice for the remaining amount that must be paid three days prior to the first day of camp.
