Summer Camp in Writing Nonfiction 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 Nonfiction for Children & Teens (July 15-19), you will:

  • Learn what types of nonfiction readers–and editors–are looking for.
  • Work one-to-one with your faculty mentor.
  • Develop necessary research and interview skills.
  • Explore today’s magazine and trade-book markets.
  • Investigate visual design through illustration and photography.
  • Connect with acquiring editors.
  • Discover how to mine personal experiences to enliven your nonfiction.
  • Study the craft of writing nonfiction: voice, narrative structure, character, theme and more.
