Summer Writing Camps


At the Summer Writers’ Camps sponsored by the Center for Writing in College, Career, and Community, participants develop their craft in an intensive workshop experience, exploring a variety of genres and writing strategies. Students get immediate feedback from their peers and from teachers who are practicing writers.

Led by teacher consultants from Ozarks Writing Project, each week-long camp offers a different focus, with the opportunity for students to sign up for more than one camp.
