Hub City Creative Writing Camp for 10 to 13-Year-Olds

This weeklong camp, led by award-winning author Kim Wright, will focus on how writers get their inspiration and explore different literary genres, including poetry, memoir, graphic novels and performance drama. Each day campers will begin their journey at the Chapman Cultural Center using journaling techniques and writing prompts to get the creative juices flowing. Campers will then set out on scavenger hunts throughout downtown and field trips to locations as varied as Hub City Writers Project, a walking labyrinth and the SCPL Headquarters Library. By the end of the week, attendants will have assembled an illustrated literary journal based on their explorations, and each will read from their finished work in a presentation for their families.
