Tenleytown (NW DC)
Fiction & Fun
Each day begins with a three-hour writing workshop, where campers ages 9 to 16 work in age-based groups with a published author or produced playwright on their original pieces. Campers choose to focus on either fiction, memoir, poetry, scripts, or journalism during a workshop, and will leave the camp with a finished piece.
In the afternoon, campers choose from a variety of electives, including options such as poetry in the park, playwriting and performance, outdoor fiction games, etc.
All writers who complete original creative work will be invited to publish their pieces on our online magazines, The Parenthetical and The Ellipsis, and to participate in a public reading at the end of the summer.
