Looking for something to do this summer? Apply to Writing Camp at MTSU!
Calling all 3rd-11th Graders! Join us for two weeks of reading and writing fun! Become a part of a community of writers and work with a published author!
WHAT MAKES A CHILD A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE MTWP YOUTH WRITERS’ CAMP?
Children who have a desire to write and who are excited about “reading like writers” will benefit the most from this camp. Campers spend the majority of their day involved in reading literature or writing, so make sure that reading and writing is something you love to do!
WHO ARE THE CAMP INSTRUCTORS?
Camp instructors are experienced classroom teachers who serve as Middle Tennessee Writing Project Teacher-Consultants. Each teacher has a passion for writing and strives to make sure that students become more confident in their own writing ability, while working in a supportive, non-threatening environment.
WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF THE MTWP YOUTH WRITERS’ CAMP?
Our goal is that each camper becomes a part of a community of authors working to explore different writing styles and genres. Within this community, we want each camper to spend extended periods of time writing, experience conferencing with peers and teachers, and ultimately discover their own writing style.
