Young writers are encouraged to sign up for a new opportunity this summer. STRONG VOICES is a writing camp for 14 to 20 year olds led by an accomplished writing teacher, culminating with a publication of the camp’s best writing and an Open Mic night. The camp runs Monday through Thursday, July 16th through July 19th, (from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and culminates in an Open Mic for the community on Friday, July 20th from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Camp Description: Do you ever find yourself ignored, suppressed or construed as inappropriate? Do you write witty, insightful Facebook posts that lead to unforeseen arguments? Or hand in a serious essay only to have the teacher think you’re mocking the assignment? Or do you just want to practice writing well? Then this camp is for you. Teacher/writer Holly Lorincz wlll help you use persuasive essay and short story formats to consciously craft a message and unique personal voice while understanding your impact on the reader.
Camp will feature lectures, guided writing times, as well as instructor and small group feedback. Journals, handbooks and writing utensils will be provided. Upon request, work will be scored as a h.s. portfolio entry. Writers must provide lunch, transportation and $65 fee.
