WHO: South Coast Writing Project

WHAT: Young Writers Camp Online

WHERE: Zoom!

WHEN: Camps run at various dates and times through July; see individual descriptions below

WHY: We are an education non-profit out of UCSB that’s been holding youth writing camps since 1993. This year we are taking our camps online and making them donation-only to support during COVID.

Additional Details:

Calling all students entering grades 4-12 who LOVE to write! Join the 27th annual Young Writers Camp… online! Courses are led by one or two credentialed teachers who are fellows of the South Coast Writing Project who have thoughtfully structured Zoom groups or camps, of about 16 students. Each online camp uniquely exposes students to a variety of writing processes and styles, allowing them to express their creativity, strengthen their writing abilities, and enhance the quality of their writing. With that said, we are very excited to write with you this Summer!
