Writing is a valuable skill, but creative writing is an art. In creative writing camps, children will get a unique chance to sharpen their tools under the guidance of professional writers. Skills like editing, creating characters, collaborating with peers, and trying their hand at many genres will be covered and practiced. All work and no play can be dull, so many of the camps also take the students out to visit outside attractions that are writing themed or full of inspiration. Camps like Duke University-Young Writer's Camp offers exciting projects like newspaper writing, short stories, and facing the challenge of sharing work with their peers. Many genres are covered, like poetry and playwriting, so whatever your child's interest, it can be delved into. Another camp, Emerging Writer's Institute has a two-week summer program, where students get an opportunity to be guided into creating publish-worthy pieces through daily writing workshops and get to go on day trips to things like the Berkeley poetry walk and the birthplace of beat poets in San Francisco. 

Creating their own written masterpieces, not only expands a child's mind and imagination, but gives them important life skills that they will need in the future, during school and in their careers. They will have the support and help of teachers who are passionate about the craft and will help nurture the students into blossoming and talented writers. For more competitive writers, there is the your word Teen Creative Writing Residency, with only 21 writers selected. Teens will strengthen skills, as well as take part in classes given by Master Writers in poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. Undoubtedly, this chance could catapult a young writer into the job that they dream of, or at the very least let them enjoy the company of other teens who share their passion.
