Enrollment is now closed, but sign up here to be alerted about additional virtual writing camp opportunities!
WHEN: Monday, July 6–Friday, July 10
WHO: Open to all young writers ages 13-18, of any writing level or experience.
WHAT: Young writers will dive into the Fantasy and Sci-Fi genres while building their writing skills and connecting with peers around the world—all within a supportive and structured online writing camp hosted by Write the World.
Participants will respond to daily writing prompts and provide peer reviews and feedback to their fellow campers. They’ll engage in a combination of independent writing activities and group meetings while receiving daily individualized feedback and mentorship from our Expert Reviewers—a team of education and writing professionals. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to learn from a special guest author in the Sci-Fi and Fantasy genres.
At the end of the week, young writers who participate in all required elements of the program will receive a certificate of completion. They will also have the opportunity to share their work with the broader Write the World community.
SCHEDULE: Camp will consist of daily check-ins with Write the World educators (approximately 45-60 mins per day), and all participants will work independently on prompts and activities, guided by peer and expert review, at their own pace for a total commitment of about three hours a day.
COST: 250 USD per participant.
