University of Central Missouri's Greater Kansas City Writing Project (GKCWP) will be hosting its annual Young Writers Camps this summer, inviting middle and high school students from across the metropolitan area to participate.
The camps, which have been offered since 1983, will take place at the Anita Gorman Discovery Center in Kauffman Legacy Park in Kansas City, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesdays through Fridays, either June 20-23 or July 11-14.
Designed to provide participants with a creative and supportive environment, the camps are created for students who already have a love of writing and want to explore their passion further. Experienced teachers of writing will lead each session.
At the end of each session, young writers will have the opportunity to share their favorite pieces with friends and families at an open mic celebration.
"Each year, we work with diverse young writers, from those who want to bring a fantasy novel they are currently working on to budding poets looking for inspiration to writers needing to find encouragement to share their ideas," said Katie Kline, director of the Greater Kansas City Writing Project.
Early bird registration for the Young Writers Camps is $225 and runs until May 1. After May 1, the cost of registration is $275. To learn more about the camps and register, visit this webpage.
