What You’ll Learn:
We envision summer camp a bit differently than just 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 that only a generous mentor can provide. Our camp offers someone to guide you through the long process of publication and a place to work one-to-one on fine-tuning your words and mastering your pitches. 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.
