Build-a-Book | Ages: 10-13

August 8, 2022 @ EST 9:00 am - August 12, 2022 @ EST 4:00 pm



So you want to write a book, but you need a plan? Learn how to plot a book chapter by chapter, taking your great idea and turning it into a juicy plot. We’ll access resources from a variety of arts and cultural organizations and learn how thoughtful observation of ordinary people and places will help bring your characters to life. We’ll study craft using our personal copies (which you will receive on the first day of camp) o Ralph Fletcher’s Live Writing, our guide to becoming better writers. Afternoons will be spent writing, conferencing, sharing with one another, and creating an anthology of excerpts from each of your books.
