Participants of all skill levels will walk away with 5+ draft writings and a deepened understanding of best practices for approaching and planning longform writing projects. From mapping the narrative arc of a text to considering how techniques such as characterization, dialogue, conflict, setting, and other elements of craft differ in novel-length works (versus short stories or flash fiction projects), participants will leave with a completed outline of a novel project and draft writings that explore various fiction techniques. Writers will also receive and provide peer feedback and will benefit from individualized feedback form their instructors.
Fiction Writing: Begin Your Novel Writing Camp: Virtual Summer Camp for Teens (ages 13-19)
Schedule: July 31st – August 4th 2023, 11:00 am-12:30 pm ET
During workshop sessions, you’ll engage in interactive writing activities, connect with peers around the world, and work together to grow your writing skills.
Between workshop sessions, you may be asked to work independently (and asynchronously) on writing prompts and activities, guided by peer and expert reviews, at your own pace, for approximately 1-2 hours, depending on your facilitator’s workshop plan. You will also receive individualized feedback that will strengthen your writing.
*Please note that we require all participants to appear on either video or audio during online group meetings (video is preferred, but not required).
A Zoom link to join us for our live, virtual online writing camp will be provided via email prior to the start date. Stay tuned!
