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


The UWMWP offers a follow-up camp for students entering grades 5-8 who have already attended the Introductory Young Writers Camp and wish to focus more time on a particular project or genre. Learn from experienced writers and teachers in genre-specific workshops that will build upon previous experience, and spend more time in small writing groups in order to work on an ongoing project.

  • Build upon fundamentals from three genres: poetry, short stories and essays/non-fiction.
  • Receive extended individual instruction and response in small groups.
  • Learn advanced writing and revision techniques used by professionals.
  • Meet and share your work with young writers from throughout the county.
  • Engage in the full writing process: brainstorming, drafting, revising, editing and publishing.
  • We will host a community event for writers to share your favorite pieces!

Past participants are welcome to attend; we recommend the Introductory Young Writers Camp for new writers.

There is a 45-minute, supervised lunch break every day. Please bring a bag lunch or, if you have permission to leave unattended, you can purchase lunch at the student union.
Dates and locations to be announced.
Fee: $179
