ASU to Host Student Writers Camps

March 21, 2014

Angelo State University’s Pearl of the Concho Writing Project will host a Young Writers Camp and a Teen Writers Camp in June and July for local and area elementary and middle school students looking to improve their writing skills.

The theme for this year’s camps is “The Story of My Life.”  The Young Writers Camp will run June 16-27 and is open to student who will be in grades 3-5 this fall.  The Teen Writers Camp will run June 30-July 12, except for July 4, and is open to students who will be in grades 6-8 this fall.  Sessions for both camps will be from 9 a.m.-noon Monday through Friday in the ASU Carr Education-Fine Arts building, 2602 Dena Drive.

The goal of the camps is to help students of all writing skill levels to become more confident in their writing and develop an appreciation of others’ writing.  Tuition for each of the camps is $200 per person, and each camper will receive a T-shirt, a book and a digital writing anthology featuring works from all the participants.

The Pearl of the Concho Writing Project is one of 10 National Writing Project sites in Texas and is part of the National Writing Project network consisting of nearly 200 sites in 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  The project, founded in 1973, provides programs to promote and improve writing and the teaching of writing.
