Middle Grades Young Writers Camp

Are you a writer? Have you ever wanted to write your own novel about dragons? Or create your own magical fanfiction? Or maybe storyboard your own comics? Join us at the University of Minnesota to write daily and create amazing stories to share! 

Our day-long camps allow young writers to explore, read, and write in their own time. Everyday, we will visit different buildings and art exhibitions throughout the University of Minnesota campus through a daily “Writing Marathon.” Students will read short stories (or bring in books of their own!) and build on their own amazing writing skills. 

Session 1: June 19–23, 9:00 AM — 3:00 PM

Session 2: June 26–30, 9:00 AM — 3:00 PM
