High School Writers Boot Camp
For ages 13-18
4 sessions: August 3, 4, 5, 6 (plus a reading on August 7)
Taught by 826NYC (with special guests)
What do Toni Morrison, Abraham Lincoln, Louis C.K., and Cicero all have in common? They’ve done some awesome writing. Join us for a four-day creative writing boot camp, and learn to write like the greats. In this workshop, we’ll master the building blocks of good writing, from finding the right word to crafting a beautiful sentence to honing the perfect paragraph. Along the way, we’ll also try our hand at four different forms of writing: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and playwriting. Want to know how words can thrill, seduce, entertain, and conquer? Want to move the hearts and minds of friends and enemies alike? Want to ace next year’s ELA exam? Then this workshop is for you.
