                                          CREATIVE WRITING CAMP (AGES 8-12) 
 
For young writers ready for the next step! Mornings for planning, writing, and sharing creative work will give young authors the joy of seeing their ideas turn into stories and novels. We'll use the "Story Mountain" story arc—beginning, problem, build-up, climax, and end. We'll find out what makes our protagonists and villains tick. If you'd like, share your writing in the Author Circle or peer group. I'll meet 1:1 with writers.
