Summer Camp in Writing Fiction 2020: Meet the Mentors
Here at the Highlights Foundation, we envision Summer Camp a bit differently than s’mores by the campfire and hiking in the woods (although those adventures are always on our schedule, too). To us, Summer Camp is a time to find the kind of encouragement for your writing or illustration that only a generous mentor can provide.
At our Summer Camp In Writing Fiction for Children & Teens (July 10-15), you will:
- Hear morning inspirational and educational keynotes by our celebrated faculty.
- Learn the basics of writing query letters and submitting manuscripts.
- Get an overview of the children’s book market.
- Work one-to-one with your faculty mentor.
- Do hands-on exercises to help you grow as a writer.
- Participate in daily break-out sessions in creating rich characters, developing voice, constructing settings, and structuring plot.
