The UWM Writing Project, Introductory Young Writers Camp Gr. 5-8


Back by popular demand, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Writing Project (UWMWP) sponsors a camp for aspiring writers of all abilities, entering grades 5-8. Meet each day in writing groups facilitated by experienced writers and teachers whose common goal is to inspire the imagination and have fun! Write daily in a creative, supportive environment, and cover a broad range of genres.

  • Explore poetry, short stories, plays, graphic novels, essays and more.
  • Receive individual instruction and response in small groups from UWMWP writing teachers.
  • Learn basic techniques used by professional writers.
  • Meet and share your work with young writers from throughout the county.
  • Engage in the full writing process: brainstorming, drafting, revising, editing and publishing.
  • The camp culminates in a celebration of writing and an opportunity to share your favorite pieces!

New and past participants are welcome to attend.
